DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. - Aug. 13, 2015 - PRLog -- A decrease in unemployment as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed job gains in professional and business services, health care, retail, financial activities, and transportation and warehousing during the second quarter of the year. With more job opportunities, workers will shift their focus away from simply finding jobs, to advancing in their careers.

According to the Management and Strategy Institute (MSI), a provider of online certification of management and business skills, greater job opportunities means that employees are increasingly looking for ways to position themselves as leaders. "Promotion from within can be challenging, especially for those who want to move from an administrative position into management," said Mike DiLeo, president of MSI. "Employees must overcome the HR department's tendency to bring outsiders into higher level management positions, and certification in Six Sigma is increasingly seen as a valuable tool for advancement."

MSI notes that certification in Six Sigma can be an essential component of enhancing one's career. According to DiLeo, the top three reasons an employee should consider certification include:

1. Management certification shows the employer you are committed to enhancing skills. Employees seeking career advancement need more than competence and seniority. Employers will be more likely to offer opportunities to those who have shown a commitment to enhancing their skills with additional education and certification.

2. Professional development. Hiring managers assume that you already know how to do the job you are currently doing. Professional development shows them that you are motivated to take the next step and gain the skills required to do the job you are not currently doing.

3. Proof of critical thinking skills necessary for management positions. HR managers recognize that management candidates need to meet multiple requirements. Beyond industry knowledge and corporate knowledge, those brought into management positions need to know how to respond to new and unexpected situations, and to motivate a team to get the best results.

"A singular focus on doing your current job well is the best way to stay exactly where you are," said DiLeo. "Career advancement calls for a different approach that shows the hiring manager you have the ability to lead, and lead well. That's where Six Sigma certification will help you shine."
