Careers in Agile Panel Discussion
February 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST
More and more companies are moving to Agile to effectively manage changes they face internally and in the marketplace. The demand for people to work in Agile is continually increasing.
*) For those of you navigating the job market or looking to make a move:
• Perhaps you have significant Agile experience and now find yourself needing to find your next job.
• Or maybe you are looking to apply your Agile experience to a different industry.
• Or perhaps you have training and certifications but no practical Agile experience and are seeking your first job role in Agile.
With a competitive job market, what steps do you need to take to
land the role you want? How do you enhance your Agile career to
find more fulfilling work?
*) Or perhaps you are a hiring manager or recruiter looking to fill positions with Agile professionals and would like to better understand what to look for when hiring for agility.
