Advice to break into ER coming from liberal arts background

Hi everyone, my is Jake. I am recent grad of BU and I majored in International Relations. I have taken several econ and math courses, so I have a slight quantitative background, but the majority of my education was qualitative. I would like to transition into an ER job, but I worry my lack of a formal technical background will stop me from doing so. My question is: what would your advice be to someone in my position that is trying to break into the ER field? Are there any recommended entry level jobs that can could be leveraged into a proper ER job or certifications that I can try to get? Thanks!
