Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a job analyst do?

Job analysts gather and inspect detailed information about the duties of new and existing jobs to prepare descriptions of positions. The descriptions illustrate the tasks, education, experience, and skills that are required by each job. They also clarify the training, compensation, and benefits the job offers. Job analysts identify and create training content and materials, training methods, and assessment tests. They create interview questions, applicant appraisal forms, and orientation materials. They also help develop performance reviews for existing employees. They review and develop goals and objectives, standards of performance, criteria for evaluation, and the length of probationary time periods. Job analysts often tour work sites to observe employees performing their jobs. They gather materials that specify the required skills such as instructions, duty statements, quality charts, and safety manuals.

What kind of training does a job analyst need?

Job analysts need at least a high school diploma, but many employers prefer candidates with college education in human resources, labor relations, or other related field. Many colleges and universities offer a variety of programs in human resources and labor relations. Prospective job analysts often complete courses in business, English, composition, human resources, compensation, training and development, and industrial psychology. Many also complete internships while completing their education to gain practical experience in the field. Most employers provide on the job training to new job analysts where they learn the policies and procedures of the position. Job analysts must stay up to date on their skills and the current advancements in the field and often complete continuing education throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a job analyst?

Employment of job analysts is expected to grow faster than average for all professions, increasing 18% from 2006 to 2016 (1).

Job prospects should be good especially for job analysts that have advanced education and certifications. Numerous job openings will arise from the need to replace job analysts that retire, transfer, or leave the profession for other reasons.

How much do job analysts make?

Job analysts must have a solid understanding of job tasks and duties and the ability to write clear descriptions. Organization, critical thinking, determination, and patience are desirable characteristics. Job analysts have excellent written and oral communication and ability to work as part of a team.
