For interviews, how can I express to future employers that mostly all of the training and study I have listed on my resume was done by me outside of work hours, with my personal funds, and not by my employer?
How can I further express that my boss did not allow me or have any interest in me using the things I had learned? (Even with training he himself paid for, he did not want me using those tools and techniques, citing 'lack of experience'.) It is important to note that my boss encourages outside study and self improvement.
Or should I even mention these things at all? I do not want to give the wrong impression that I have rich experience actually doing the things I have studied, but want to let future employers know I have an improvement mindset and passion for my job.
EDIT: It is also important to note that the things I studied (Six Sigma, business process improvement, project management, business analysis, operations management, portfolio management) are well within the scope of my job title at work, and nothing outside of what I am asked to do within my job role (small business, lots of hats).
