Keeping Up With Industry News: Trade Journals, Newsletters and Annual Reports

Staying on top of the latest news and developments in your industry can help you move to the top of your profession. If you're interested in saving a little paper (and possibly money) by getting your industry news online rather than in print, you'll find some great resources on the following sites.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Joining a professional association or union is a good way to keep up with the newest developments in your industry. For sites that can help you find such organizations, read the "Connecting With Your Professional Community" section of this guide.
  • If you have a favorite industry publication that you read offline, you may be able to access some (or all) of the content on the Web. To find the publication's Web site, try adding ".com" to its name, or typing the name of the publication into a search engine such as Zuula.
  • Trade publications typically offer calendars of upcoming conferences, trade shows, and other events that you'll also be able to find on their Web sites.
  • Most annual trade shows or conferences have Web sites of their own to let you know what will be happening at the next event, who will be speaking, and how to register.
