Let’s check out how Six Sigma certification makes your CV valuable. Also we will see what kind of packages you can expect and how it can be valuable for your future career prospects.
Now a day’s getting job for a fresher is very hard. Everybody asks for an experienced candidate. But Six Sigma certification makes a good impression on the interviewer even as a fresher in the resume. The knowledge of Six Sigma itself creates a respect in the mind of the interviewer. During an interview he may ask many insightful things about six sigma philosophies. A candidate has to have good knowledge with all theoretical definitions. Having any practical experience is definitely an added advantage.

But when we talk about experienced person, some additions are there in grading method such as,
- Number of successful projects carried out using six sigma strategies.
- Period of experience.
- Calibre shown during interview.
- Overall understanding of six sigma terms and their use.
- Budget of the company.
- Negotiation for salary over current salary.
