Human Resource Management Final Exam 45 Sample Questions


Hello, my name is Ramesh C. Reddy. As the publisher of the online edition of the Pittsburgh Standard, I would like to welcome you to our paper. The paper originally started out as a monthly paper edition serving predominantly the Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh community. It was funded by the Center for Life and Family to give students an alternative paper to the Pitt News and the Tartan.
          It was a pilot program for an entire school year from September 2001-April 2002. We ran the paper without paid advertisements. As of April 2002, the print edition had stopped but I am so grateful for all the staff that made the paper possible from the publisher to each writer.
          When the paper was not going to be coming anymore, I was a bit disappointed because I heard wonderful stories of the impact the paper made in many student’s lives. I did not want that impact to be stifled just because there was not going to be a print edition.
          As the then managing editor of the paper, I took it upon myself to do what I could so that the paper would continue if not as a paper edition. With this in mind, I contacted the publisher to see if I could use the Pittsburgh Standard’s name to run the paper online. Permission rights were given to me to have the Pittsburgh Standard’s name to run an online edition as long as the Center for Life and Family would be absolved of having anything to do with the online edition starting in May 2002 until a future paper edition could return.
          An agreement was reached and the Pittsburgh Standard was born on a commercial site http://www.pittsburghstandard.com. Just because I decided to start an online edition of the paper, I did not want people to forget what made this opportunity possible.
          With this in mind, I have archived all of the paper edition issues from Sept 2001-April 2002 and included them on the site with a new monthly archive section since April 2002.
          Now as the paper runs as a commercial site and I was given rights to have the name, I don’t intend to forget what made the paper successful. If anything, I hope to see the online edition improve over the paper edition.
          I encourage you all to look through the archives to see the kind of articles that were covered in the paper so you can know what the editors and writers made possible. All of them will be moving on but the Standard will remain. It will remain to reach out to readers in different ways through the different sections of the paper.
          If you have always wanted to write and could never find the opportunity to write, I invite you to come aboard the PS. The online paper can only become better with dedicated editors and writers who have a passion to use the paper as a means of public service whether that service includes covering breaking news, writing impressions and expressions to influence and challenge the public, etc. The paper does not end with those sections alone for there is more to the paper to reach the public masses. You can reach us with any questions or comments at  pghstndrd@pittsburghstandard.com or rcrst6@pitt.edu

I would now like to leave you with the words of the former Editor-in-Chief, Jeremy Day.  He is the one who took upon himself with other members of Chi Alpha Ministries the responsibility of making the print-edition of the paper a reality and influenced lots of students with the limited staff team he was able to have.

      “As part of our effort to respect and acknowledge all viewpoints, we welcome comments and submissions. We do this to continually provide a high level of service and integrity to our readership. We want to give you all the information you need and want, when you want it. So enjoy yourself as you are looking through the Pittsburgh Standard and thanks for reading! The mission of our paper is “To get the truth behind various news stories out into the public’s eye and educate them in various ways. We will not be biased one way or the other, but we will always carry the light of truth that comes from Christ. Our hope is to slowly pull our generation from the quagmire that Hollywood and the media has seemed to have led us into.”

Through the years, the paper had lost its focus on what Jeremy Day originally intended. What has already been written will not be removed but from now on to bring the paper back to its original mission, as of MAY 21, 2007, we will no longer be a conservative paper alone.

Instead, we will be an objective paper whose focus will be on emphasizing a biblical worldview in our writings whether we are labeled as conservative, liberal, libertarian, socialist, communist, etc in our coverage of what is happening on the campus, in the city, in the country, and in the continent from a biblical worldview. We will however not forget to reach out to the masses with the Gospel of Jesus Christ whenever we can!

With this in mind, we encourage all students to join our staff and have their work published. We come #1 in Google search when our name is typed in the search engine which did not happen before. Also, our writers can usually be found on Google search!


We hope you join us! We write for you! You decide for us!
