Can I land a job as a scrum master with just 1 year experience?
I only have 1 year experience in a tech company as automation test engineer in agile. I want to persue a career as scrum master. I want to take up the certification course soon. What are my chances of actually landing a job as a scrum master with just a scrum master certification and without any post graduation degree / MBA
It will be a challenge, but there are a few possible approaches that can help:
- Combine the Scrum Master role with another role (such as an automation test engineer) - organisations that hire for combined roles will be less strict on the Scrum Master experience
- Look at charities and NGOs - salaries won't be as high, but they are typically a bit more open-minded in their recruiting strategy
