In this episode, Professional Scrum Trainer Eric Landes addresses the questions: "Will the Professional Scrum Master Certification help me get a job as a Scrum Master?"

The Professional Scrum Master certification Bolsters your Credentials

Of course there is no guarantee of a job with a certification, but I believe it helps you have the intelligent conversations around scrum when you have the background from passing a certification in the Scrum framework. If you are already working in IT, one way to do bolster your chances for a job would be to take the class and go for the certification.  Then in your current job, use Scrum with your team, at any opportunity you have. 

Get Experience in the Scrum Master Role

If you can volunteer for other teams within your organization.  This will help you get experience with the concepts.  Then you are positioned to be a Scrum Master in your current organization should the opportunity present itself.  Having the certification helps, and get as much experience as you can as you attempt to become a full time scrum master.
