You've heard about the benefits of having Lean Six Sigma certifications: better problem-solving skills, getting noticed by companies and recruiters, added credibility, and many more. These are all good, but is there career progression if you gain a Lean Six Sigma certification and training? Here's a true story of John Matthew "Hyde" Martinez - an IT professional.
The Starting Point
Hyde started his career as a Service Desk Analyst Agent in a software solutions company. He has been in the same position for 8 years. His tenure in the same position made him rethink his knowledge and skills and how to better solve problems relating to his job. Last 2020, Mr. Martinez took it upon himself to broaden his knowledge and skills by enrolling in DivergenZ's Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt online training and certification.
Completing the Certifications and the Turning Point
After gaining his Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt certification, Mr. Martinez enrolled in DivergenZ's Lean Six Sigma Black Belt online training and certification. After updating his curriculum vitae/ resume to include his Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification and despite still working on his Black Belt project to be fully certified, he immediately received job offers from 4 different companies, to his surprise.
After working as a Service Desk Analyst Agent, Hyde accepted a job to be a Service Desk Supervisor to apply his Lean Six Sigma knowledge and skills. He is also working as a Systems Manager as a consultant; both roles are earning him a 6-figure salary.
This is why getting trained in Lean Six Sigma will be a significant accelerant of one's career. The jobs available in the market today demand the skills that only Lean Six Sigma can develop.
