Article Abstract

One resource quality professionals can leverage into larger salaries is certifications. Certifications can lead to large salary changes, but only for certain positions. For instance, data from the 2011 QP Salary Survey shows that a safety engineer with the ASQ reliability engineer certification can expect to earn over $21,000 more per year than one without the certification. Certifications can also help compensate for a lack of degree and make prospective employers more willing to consider an applicant, but not all employers have an interest in ASQ certification or quality in general. This knowledge is just one way that professionals can leverage data from the salary survey to their advantage.
