Definitely highlight your Six Sigma belt certification in the "education" section on your resume. List certifications last, after degrees or diplomas. Create a subheading titled "Certifications." Below this, include the name of the institution that provided the certification and the words "Six Sigma Black Belt Certified (SSBBC)" for example.

Hi Garrett,

I'm in total agreement with all responses. When articulating any Lean or Six Sigma experience, it's valuable to reference your business value-add in important business metrics, e.g., sales, throughput, cost reduction, etc., in financial terms where ever possible. The point of these methodologies is they are a means to organically improve businesses in operational and financial terms. Indicating that you've had experience in driving financial performance is very impressive to potential employers.

Hi Garrett -- I agree with a lot of the responses here about adding to your resume and LinkedIn profile. One way you might approach it on LinkedIn would be to highlight (concisely) how you've used Six Sigma in a specific project that delivered value for your company or customers. And be ready to tell that story in a phone screen with a recruiter and interview with a hiring manager. Always good to be able to use storytelling to make the point about how you've applied your skills and education to deliver great results. Hope this helps!

Of course you would include it in your resume but you should also make sure you have it on your LinkedIn profile as well. Recruiters use search engines to quickly scan hundreds of resumes for key words so you want to make sure it appears in both places.

Answering the question from the topic: include it in the profile summary and prepare a few examples of projects or situations where you proven your skills. Don't forget to highlight benefits, lessons learned and your role in the process. Read about the company and try to prepare some ideas about where your experience could be visible or useful if you get then job.
