While the jobs market is improving, it can still be challenging to stand out among the hoards of other applicants. In this climate, many unemployed people rightly believe that a Lean Six Sigma qualification will give them the edge they need – however if you need a successful project to certify, and you need a company to run a project for, it can seem like an awful Catch-22.
In this 60 second video, senior consultant Mike Titchen explains how we make it easy for unemployed delegates to certify, and get the experience they need on successful projects.
It can be difficult to decide the best course of action if you’re unemployed and looking for work. On the one hand, it is beneficial to show new (potential) employers that you’re continuing to invest in your professional development.
On the other hand, unemployment is not a state we want to stay in for long and it make sense to devote all of our time to job searching.
However, we think that the impact on your CV of learning a new skill like Lean Six Sigma overrules any negative effects of slowing down the job search. And, you can continue to look for work while you’re studying – it shows your new employer you’re enthusiastic and capable.
Without a place of work, certifying can be a challenge though. But, as you’ll have seen in the video above, we have a solution for certifying in Lean Six Sigma while unemployed. We have a series of fantastically realistic case studies that we ask delegates to complete as though they were tackling a real project.
As with project work set in the real-world, you’ll not be allowed to move on to the next stage of the project until your Master Black Belt is satisfied with the work you’ve done. You can read more about our case studies in our FAQs.
