Its staff is available to help you find a resolution for any questions you may have on quality standards or procedures. ASQ also offers certification programs for quality engineers, quality managers, and quality auditors.

Cnet (www.cnet.com) is a consumer guide to technical information on computers, printers, and other things you would need for your office. There are a lot of suppliers advertising as well. People who have used the Web site give ratings from 1-10 on the products they have bought, and also list reasons for their scores. The Web site lets consumers compare different models and prices.
Hotjobs (www.hotjobs.com) and Monster (www.monster.com) are great because people post résumés on them, and employers can advertise positions. It simply makes good business sense to utilize such resources. They are valuable tools, and have helped us reduce expensive recruitment costs.
