 I have been having a lot of conservations of late with people who are trying to secure roles scrum masters and the biggest question that keeps coming up in some form or another is:

How do you deal with the role descriptions or interviewers that are looking for some sort of project manager/scrum master?

Short answer: Stop reading the job post or tell the recruiter I'm not interested.  

Longer answer: I'd serious think about whether I would want to leave where I am to go to that company.  Or if I was unemployed, would I be happy working there given the information I just discovered.  There is absolutely nothing you can do unless you start working there.  And even then you may not be able to make any kind of impact.

I might ask to understand a bit more about the problem they're trying to solve, and how someone in the contradictory role of "project manager/scrum master" is expected to help.

Uhh, i'm 99 percent sure this is a copy paste of my linkedin post from the otherday? 

"I've been having a lot of conversations lately with people who are trying to secure roles as SM's, and one thing that keeps coming up in some form or another is:

"How do you deal with role descriptions or interviewers that are looking for some sort of project manager/Scrum master hybrid"

My simplest and most honest answer? Don't.`'

What's with all this weird spam on the scrum forum lately? Why are you literally copy pasting my linkedin posts here?
