    I was recently offered a position with a major player in six sigma but unfortunately my job offer was withdrawn due to a recrutiment freeze – I have spent months learning how to use six sigma tools in my own time and am keen to still train as a black belt. Can anyone advise me of companies that offer such an opportunity and how I would go about applying?
     
    Thanks

    Jane, Good morning!It is terrific that you have learned the Six Sigma tools on your own. You need to know this, though: Even though you are Six Sigma “trained”, if you have not completed (at least) one Six Sigma Project as a Team Leader, most companies that you apply which have active Six Sigma programs with will NOT consider you to be “Six Sigma trained”. When you are interviewing with companies, despite what they may say, they are really interested in your answers to these 2 key topics:1. What can you do for my company (and me)?2. Why do you (really) what this job?Every other question they will ask is either related to this, or is designed to “weed out” candidates who do not fit their culture.To get the Six Sigma Black Belt training you desire, you need to have good answers to these 2 questions — what would you tell companies about these topics?
    Can you, for instance, demonstrate how you have used some of the Six sigma tools, even if you have not been able to complete a Project? Can you give them examples of how your self-taught knowledge would be useful to them regarding key operational or competitive issues they are facing?Best regards,
    QualityColorado

    Hola Jane,
    I was  certified by AITG inc. They are expensive, but they are worth every cent.
    Now, real world wants people that’s deliveres results. It does not matter wich company or institute certified you.
    Resolving project in real life would teach you what you can not be taugh in a classroom: The human factor, that unfortunately impacts the bottom line results of any project about 70 to 80 % of the solution of the problem.
    When I was hired for my company; they did not ask who certified me; all the questions were in regards how a managed six sigma projects.
    Most answers had both, six sigma’s tools and human aspects involved.
    I got the job. It’s a great job.
    Bottom line; if you already have what it takes to manage the DMAIC process & tools, and the company’s people appreciate your experience as a Project Leader as a SSBB; you would be okay by having any kind of certification. Look for a company that is willing to certify you via intenet.
    They would ask for a project though; but, that should not be an issue for you.
    Regards and good luck.
    G
