    Hello TSR!

    I am a experienced Chemistry graduate where I graduated way back in 2010 with a 1st class honours looking to pursue a career change away from my industry. I have been overqualified for the roles i have held for approximatly 4 four years where i am not applying any technical knowledge from my degree and the only for me to progress into a managerial position is to study towards an NVQ. I would say I am very much disliked in my workplaxe in addition to having a decline interest in degree subject.

    I have self invested in training courses relating to SQL and VBA programming but has only made a small difference in terms of targeting new opportunities.

    Having struggled to transition across into an "analyst" role, I am thinking of returning to university to study a masters course relevent to either a business/data/pricing-analyst positions. Does any currently work as BA and confirm if this will be benifical or is it possible to achieve this an alternate way.

    I look forward to your responses.
