    I have already got my training in green belt.I have recently moved to Philadelphia,USA.I am currently not working and I thought this was a good opportunity to get trained in six sigma black belt.This wouldΒ  be an online course through Villanova U.My question is,does it make sense to get BB training before I am out there working?One way to look at the positive is its a great skill to possess professionally,though it is expensive.Another way to look at it is should I work for an organization that has a six sigma program and then go through the internal training?
    I am really confused.Any insight in this matter would help.

    Yours is a common question on this forum.Β  Many opinions (including my own) are well documented here if you do a little searching.
    What do you think the company hiring you would prefer?

    Amisha,Depending on your industry, will depend on you waiting for the perfect BB opportunity to present itself. Considering that you’re already a Green, there are opportunities for individuals with this certification. I would encourage you to continue seeking employment as a Green or Mid-level PM, while pursuing your BB certification with Villanova.A great place for GB’s right now is GE Healthcare Systems, IBM and Perot Systems. Considering that GE is one of the pioneers of Six Sigma in the country, send your cv to them.Good luck.E

    Dr.Jacquescoley,
    Thankyou for the valuable insight! I am really interested in pursuing my black belt andΒ using those skills in a healthcare industry.
    Would you know healthcare consultancies who’d be willing to hire GBs/BBs apart from GE Healthcare?
    I’d appreciate any information

    A lot of employers I see (not all) like to see project(s) under your belt ( no pun intended!) with shown savings. I would consider going to work as a Greenbelt, show some good skills with that then hit them up for BB training.

    amisha,
    First there is an associated part of this site – see the home page that has job adds. Second there is a sister site for healthcare.
    Good luck
