Can it be done over Skype?
While meeting face-to-face always feels better, we can make it work over Skype too. Don't let your geographic location stop you, but keep in mind that if you are after specific job market insights, East Coast of Australia (Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne) are the areas I'm most familiar with.
Career Coaching is a fancy term for series of 1:1 sessions that I'm happy to offer you to get your confidence, professional direction, job hunting motivation and work with the local recruitment professionals back on track.
Having transitioned my own career into the "Agile space" years ago the hard way and with no guidance, I've learned a lot about the struggles that professionals like you and I experience during similarly testing phases of our lives.
Since then I've been introducing organisational agility, training and mentoring people, assisting in screening, interviewing and hiring processes. Among other things this was an opportunity for me to take note of the most costly mistakes that prevented employment of some professionals, where others were more successful.
I've collaborated with the fellow Agile Coaches and recruitment professionals to develop testing programs and a professional certification, publishing books that shared some of my findings and experience.
I'm proud to have helped many Agile job seekers regain their confidence after they've been knocked back by our somewhat hostile and highly competitive job market.
Lean-Agile Certified Practitioner (LACP) is an independent and non-accredited certification introduced and maintained by the JoinAgile Initiative.
It gained momentum during 2019-2020 with many Agile practitioners passing our test and becoming LACP certified to prove their levels of Lean-Agile proficiency to their potential employers.
A few Australian recruitment companies have started using our Competency Testing Portal to quickly assess the levels of Lean-Agile competency of their job applicants as part of their screening processes.
LACP validates that the certified professional possesses sufficient amount of knowledge and experience in the following areas:
Practical applications of the Scrum Framework
Practical applications of Lean Kanban Method
Agile Fundamentals and Lean Thinking
Basics of Agile Operational Scaling
Our Competency Testing Portal is ready to help automate your job applicant screening process by inviting them to pass our assessment of your choosing, or simply based on the job title they've applied for.
As a Recruiter or a hiring Manager you'll need to request an invitation by connecting with the founder of this service on LinkedIn.Connect and get invited
