For 18 years I have greatly enjoyed working for one of the largest Dutch banks. Over the course of time, I have been able to work in various roles, from Application Management, Functional Management, Implementation Management to Project Management. Changes in the organization in the form of a reorganization was the reason for me to participate in the Make IT Work program to allow me to retrain to another job. As part of my retraining, I have taken a number of EXIN exams, including EXIN Agile Scrum Foundation and EXIN Information Security Foundation. The fact that I could do EXIN exams on location was a big advantage for me. Another big advantage is that you almost immediately have an indication of whether you have succeeded in passing your exam and which score you received. It's been a great success for me! The certifications have led to a significant increase in visitors and notifications on my LinkedIn profile. By following the training courses and achieving these certifications, I will be more employable in the future. In the job market, there is a great deal of demand for experience, but also increasingly for demonstrable certification.
