You may be asking yourself: If I get Six Sigma training, what sort of jobs would I be qualified for? Recently, an ad appeared in Rigzone — a news and information source for those in the oil and gas industry — which gives you an idea as to what you can do if you have the right combination of experience and training. The ad is for a Finance Continuous Improvement Specialist for Shell.
A continuous improvement specialist within the finance area of the company would be black belt certified and would drive process performance improvement, the ad states, through the application of Lean Six Sigma methodology. Additionally, the continuous improvement specialist would lead Lean Six Sigma projects and coach green and yellow belts through the delivery of these projects.
The career, which also requires a bachelors in business finance or engineering, is based in Houston with some travel required. It is a permanent, full-time position.
Many people who got their degree in finance may have been left wondering how to use that degree in recent years. It’s true, the finance industry is not what it once was. However, the oil and gas industry is thriving and, in the age of making every dollar count, the knowledge gained by a Six Sigma certification is very much in demand. Six Sigma black belts earn thousands of dollars more a year than their non-certified counterparts.
The world is filled with people who have degrees in business finance. Give yourself a competitive edge in the job market with Six Sigma black belt certification.
