How to Get Your First Scrum Master Job in 60 Days or Less

You know how a lot of people take a Scrum Master training, maybe post their résumé on a job board, but don’t get a call? 

The ScrumPossible Apprentice Program gets you the experience you need to get noticed . . . plus résumé, networking and interview savvy to snag a great offer, even if:

  • You come from a non-Scrum background
  • All the jobs you see want more experience than you actually have
  • You’re not sure where to start 
  • Your résumé isn’t “Scrumified”
. . . because Scrum Masters aren’t born; they’re Apprenticed.

Private Community, Actionable Programs

Learning Scrum is a team sport! So as an Apprentice, you get access to our private online community. And since learning Scrum is more like learning a foreign language vs. learning to a bike, it helps to have our friendly community supporting you! You get on-demand support, 24x7.

Games & Quizzes

Building your Scrum Master skills and experience works better when its fun. You'll find these programs chock-full of fun activities, like simulations, scenarios, quick-start cheat sheets and more.

Kelly is one of the most influential people that I have had the pleasure of working with in my career. She has done an amazing job training me to become a better agile leader. She has a unique talent for engaging people and taking them outside of their comfort zone so that they can grow as individuals. She inspires me to want to become not only a better employee but also a better person.

Of course Kelly knows Agile, Scrum and all the rest of it inside out - not just in theory but hardened by years of experience. But what I really appreciate is how she nudged us in ways that were really good for our individual learning. Spot on, Kelly! Thank you.

Kelly's course was a real game changer for me. She provided advice and practical guidance. She also shared her real life experiences in agile, which was great. I’m fortunate to have had the time I did with her, and I will always recommend Kelly to anyone in working with her.

I can strongly recommend Kelly as an Agile Consultant and Coach. I have been working with her for a year now and she helps me to bring out the best in me and can consult in tricky agile transformation situations. Plus she is a very easy to like person 🙂

The course was extremely helpful. I got more familiar with Jira and I started playing around with it and created my own backlog. The explanations about the ceremonies are broken down in a way that is easy to understand, and having sample language and cheat sheets was so helpful. I still review the course to be updated and improve my facilitation skills.

Kelly was my coach for the past year as part of the Siemens "Agile Transformation Coach" program. She was very skillful at applying various 360 degree and self-assessment techniques as well as at asking powerful questions. This made me reflect about myself and helped me grow as an individual and leader. At the same time, Kelly was very mindful to at times change her coaching hat into a consulting hat. This allowed me to tap into her great wealth of Lean and Agile experience and apply it in my organization.

It's rare to encounter an individual truly passionate about what they do, and the impact they aspire to have. Kelly is that person. Her strength in Scrum and Agile leadership coaching, and the positive impact she's had on me, are rooted from these and similar selfless qualities that I find hard to label but impossible not to notice. She's a must have within your arsenal.

Learning about Scrum and Agile in the beginning can be confusing. There is a lot of theory out there but it can be difficult to connect the dots and learn practical skills that are required to actually do the Scrum Master job. Kelly’s Scrum Master Apprentice Program provides the perfect framework to learn about THE ACTUAL JOB. The program is holistic and includes everything you need to know from learning the basics to applying for jobs to doing the job. Her approach is extremely practical and actionable, and you learn experientially by doing things step by step. If you want to learn about Scrum Mastering, look no further, Kelly is THE person for you!

Meet Kelly Fidei, Ph.D, Agile Career Coach

I work with talented people who are ready to grow. Grow your agile career, grow your earnings, grow your job happiness. I help you not only survive, but thrive.  

Kelly Fidei, Ph.D, Agile Career Coach

Maybe you you feel you’re not learning or growing in your career. You’re not happy in your current job. Or you’re ready for a career change, and want to earn more. Or maybe you hate commuting into a physical office when you could be working from home in a remote Scrum position. These are all reasons why our Apprentices choose our practical career boost programs.

You get a Scrum job that makes you wake up each day excited to get to work. You feel you’re constantly learning and growing. You finally feel you’re earning a healthy salary. And you work remotely and got your family time back.

I understand your dilemma of wanting to get into Scrum Mastering but not sure how. Lots of people I meet tell me they took a training, only to have a rude awakening when they realized training isn’t enough to get them the job. Because learning to Scrum Master is more like learning to play the piano, and less like learning to ride a bike – it takes practice. The Scrum Master Apprentice Program gets you that practice.

I also understand your dilemma of posting your résumé on a job board, but not getting calls. Like getting rejected before you even go on the first date! Our programs give you the insider Job-Capture skills to solve that, like how to keep bots from  killing off your résumé, tricks to “Scrumify” your résumé, and the best ways to prepare for your Scrum interview. 

And I understand the problem that entry-level Scrum Master jobs want experience . . . and how hard it is to get it! The solution? The Scrum Master Apprentice program gives you more than 15 concrete ways to build up your experience outside a formal Scrum Master job.

When you choose to work with me, you’ll benefit from my decades as a Scrum hiring manager, Agile Coach and Career Coach. That’s a unique combination you likely won’t find anywhere else. I’ve coached and trained over 20,000 people in Agile, career development and finding the best in themselves.


Getting you the job, not just the training. Boost your job happiness and salary.
