Employment opportunities in standardization include positions as a standards professional, supporting the standards development process through marketing, sales, and management, and working at a conformity assessment body such as a test lab, inspection body, certification body, or accreditation body.

Volunteering your expertise and time by participating on a standards development committee, working group, or other body is a great educational and growth experience for any professional.
