Hello everyone, I’m a Healthcare IT Business Analyst working for a consulting firm in the US since Jan 2017. I’m about to create my Express Entry profile and would like some help regarding selecting my NOC Code.
The job duties/responsibilities when I applied for the job are as follows:
Work closely with prog management and business owners to interview, research, analyze, and derive business, functional and technical requirements.
Develop an in-depth understanding of the prog to clarify and translate requirements into functional and non-functional specifications.
Collaboration with business owners and development process.
Design and develop prototypes and test data to confirm requirements and ensure design integrity.
Create software acceptance test plans and participate in sign-off on acceptance test results.
Collaborate with business owners to understand documentation needs.
Gain an understanding of implementation issues and product improvement opportunities.
According to the job duties on the immigration website, I believe I should choose 2171 but some duties overlap with those of other codes. Also, I’ve found that as per this link: http://noc.esdc.gc.ca/English/NOC/NewNOC.aspx?ver=16, the Business Analyst title has been removed from the NOC Code 2171 in December 2017.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
