    77. Coffee and the Resume

    77. Coffee and the Resume

    It's summertime, the season of recent grads sending out their brand new resumes. I sat down with the team behind the Meta-Cast podcast, Josh Anderson (@nosrednAhsoJ) and Bob Galen (@bobgalen), to talk about this time-honored document as it relates to the Scrum master role. They shared some great perspectives and tips, some of which might change how you think about resumes.







    After speaking, I combined takeaways from our conversation with a bunch of other research, interviews and data about the resume for Scrum masters and assembled it all on the Scrum master resume page.















    Here are a few ways to get in touch with Bob and Josh:







    * Bob's websites include rgalen.com and agile-moose.com* Bob is on LinkedIn at linkedin.com/in/bobgalen* Josh shares the best agile content at kazi.io* Listen to the Meta-Cast at meta-cast.com - they just posted their 200th episode!







    Whether you're a job-seeker or not, this conversation is certain to keep you informed if not entertained.
