    Agile or Scrum?

    I'm was told the hiring manager is going to ask me one of five questions "What design and development methodologies to you believe in?" Regarding to my style? Next week.

    I wasn't sure if I have a good answer to the question since I don't really have these experience before. What's the best answer to tell the hiring manager?

    Thank you!

    That you don't have experience with them. It's the only honest answer.

    I have 22 years experience in the development and design role and I'm having a hard time understanding what they are and I lost my job last May I really need the job. I just need a good answer so that way I will be able to experience it on the new job if hired.

    That doesn't change the answer. I've never used either myself, and I wouldn't go telling anyone that I have. If you have 22 years' worth of experience in other things, then you should have enough working knowledge and aptitude to be honest with an employer.

    When I interview anyone for a job in my office I would never ask such a questions as that

    I would ask, may I see your resume and how many years of experience do you have? I would then read the resume and ask questions about his experiences on the resume, his goals and what do you think you can do to help improve my business. I would also read the person's body language and try to get a feeling for his personality traits.

    Not only does a person work for me have to have a college education, preferably a masters degree in the position I have an opening for, but their personality has to fit with all of us in here.

    I'm with TheGame on this one, just be honest, always be honest in a job interview or it could come back to bite you later. If you have the experience you say you have that's what an employer should be looking at

    Don't write checks your *** can't cash. It probably won't be a killshot if you don't have experience in their process. Imagine if they spend the money spinning you up only to have to fire you because you fed them a load during the interview, which will become obvious soon enough.

    Do your best to familiarize yourself beforehand, perhaps enough to form an opinion in the least. It will show that you are interested in learning. Overall, be honest with them about your experience, though. They'll appreciate the candor.

    Ron raises a good point, although indirectly. Let's say you get the job and that you prefer X methodology over Y without experience in either. Let's say you get fired when they find out you have no experience, which is a distinct possibility.

    What happens then? You can't put the job on your resume. You got fired. If a prospective employer calls that employer, you're not exactly going to get a glowing recommendation. However, not putting it leaves a gap on your resume as well, which also looks bad. So you lose either way.
