six sigma black belt




My husband has a work experience of 4.5 yrs in the field of Quality, Lean & Six sigma in a Multi national bank.
He is an accredited ISO 9001:2008 Lead Auditor (Quality council of India), certified Six Sigma Green belt and is planning to do Six Sigma black belt certification from ASQ. We plan to immigrate to Canada by Jan'16.

Kindly advise
- Will the black belt certification be useful in canadian market? Is is worth doing?
- What are the job prospects of such a role in toronto?

The answer is not that straight forward.
Hard skills being the same, it is the soft skills and Luck that can progress you higher.
Banking is relatively a stable field where the Canadian big 5 banks being one of the best in the world. Oppertunities are there but it will take skills to get into the organisations.

Toronto is your leading destination and hence donot change that. Other options are montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. Toronto leads.

Give us more info. on the skills of your husband.

I would suggest go to indeed.ca and search by keywords and see how many jobs are posted where your husband's profile might fit. You can ignore manager and senior managers jobs for now in the listed jobs. It should give you some idea of the job market.

One thing all immigrants should understand is that just because you qualify for PR does not guarantee a job in Canada. You resign from your present job and come to Canada at your own risk.

Obtaining a BB certification via ASQ is relatively inexpensive and easy. He needs to review and prepare using the Indiana Primer for BB (one of many sources for exam prep) and write an exam. However, he also needs to have evidence of 2 SS projects that he has completed.

That being said, BB certification is only an extra feather in the hat and is not a guarantor of employment. If an employer "prefers" to have candidates with BB, his resume might stand out for further consideration.

In a very competitive landscape for job seekers, every little bit helps. The SS certification is definitely one of those things. I'd put the existing GB on the resume front and center and talk about the project that went with it.

Since you already have a GB, I don't think the BB will add that much value in the job search, since the certification itself is basically a foot through the door. I would think highlighting the existing GB would suffice.

There's no harm in doing it if it can be done though and if your husband has a genuine interest in it. It can only help. But my personal opinion is it will not have a significant impact on his resume "wow" factor.

Are you there?

Thanks for your revert. The website indeed.ca did provide some idea of the kind of jobs to expect.

While I understand that expecting a similar job in Canada would be impractical In the beginning. However in how many years / months can we expect to get similar job (assuming that I perform well and do any courses/certifications required in Canada).

Thanks for your revert. Are there any other courses / certifications (in India or Canada) that may help?

Thanks for your revert and useful inputs. I could find some jobs on indeed.ca specifically looking for BB. As you said, I believe there is no harm in doing it.

Could you please throw some more light on Indiana primer. How can i access that?
