    Episode 17: An interview with Agile Delivery Lead Attia Jamil

    On this episode, I'm interviewing an Agile Delivery Lead Attia Jamil who's been working in the Agile space for the last 8yrs and in Project Management for 16 years.



    We hear all about Attia's experience working in two very different ways of working starting with the more traditional Waterfall projects through to the present day and working with Agile teams.



    I also ask her questions the following:



    "Can Project Managers be Agile?"

    " Is it time to ditch the title Project Manager?'

    "Is Agile misunderstood?"



    Plus lot's more.

    Episode 16: 25 Ways to Prepare For a Remote Project Management Interview

    Episode 16: 25 Ways to Prepare For a Remote Project Management Interview

    On this weeks episode, I’m taking you through 25 ways to prepare for a remote Project Management interview.

    Thousands of companies around the world are adapting to the new way of working, and it’s changing the way we think about how we work and how we recruit.

    More and more companies are now not only recruiting remotely but the candidates they’re looking at can be truly global.

    What this means is the market for specific roles is getting bigger, so how you prepare for an interview is now even more critical.

    A remote interview still requires the same preparation as a face to face interview when it comes to preparing your questions, rehearsing your responses and research on the role and company you’re interviewing for.

    What changes with a remote interview is the set up of your interview space. With face to face interviews, it was how you presented yourself physically but now you have to consider things like how good is your audio, what is your viewing angle like and do I have a quiet space to do the interview in.

    By completing these 25 preparation tasks, it could be the difference from having a good interview versus having a great one.
