Hi all,

I am looking to break into tech and of all the careers I’ve researched so far, being a scrum master caught my attention. I do not have a lot of funds at the moment to enrol in expensive courses but I wanted to ask what the likelihood of finding a job after the scrum alliance certification is? Any help will be appreciated

I think your best course of action is to work up to being a Scrum Master. In my experience, Scrum Masters usually have several years of experience in tech, usually as a developer. I don't think you will find much success finding Scrum Master job with just a certification and no experience.

You should look for an entry level position in the tech industry (tech support is usually a good place to start). Then, once you've established yourself in that role, discuss with your manager your desire to move into the Scrum Master role. They may even be able to have the company pay for your training/certification.

Scrum Master basically manages how much work is going to happen in a sprint and keeps things moving. It’s hard to do if you don’t know the underlying work. You need to have been in the trenches to know how long it should take to crawl through one. @Chief is right, tech support is a good place to start. You could also look into QA. Obviously the best position in the tech industry is being an engineer, but that’s not for everyone and has a high bar to entry.
