Important tool for a successful job search
Make no mistake, staying on top of the news and trends of your industry are an integral part of your job search. In fact, according to a survey conducted on behalf of The New York Times Job Market, the majority (85%) of employers surveyed
agree that keeping up-to-date in a candidate's field of expertise is a very important tool for conducting a successful job search.
Read Business & Trade Publications In Your Industry
So, whether you're looking to move up or to move on, reading business and trade publications can definitely help you move right in to the job of
your dreams! For starters, being fluent on the latest trends in your profession can be invaluable while networking or interviewing. These magazines keep you sharp, well informed, articulate and in-demand!
To help you stay current, JobSeeker Weekly has arranged for its readers to instantly subscribe online to practically every leading industry
and business publication. For more information or to sign up for complimentary trade magazines, just go to TradePub.
Imagine how being able to make conversation about the latest industry trends and events can be used as an ice breaker while networking. You can stimulate
conversation by asking the opinions of others on industry developments -- all the while appearing to be the well-informed expert.
In fact, the person with the most power in a conversation is often the facilitator of the conversation - the one asking questions and opinions of others, listening intently and showing respect for everyone's
answers without taking a position too strongly, being argumentative or coming off like a know-it-all.
Demonstrate Industry Knowledge To Projects Confidence
Your ability to demonstrate keen industry knowledge in conversation helps you project confidence. It also makes an all important yet unspoken statement that you are
dedicated and conscientious about your chosen profession -- inspiring others to instinctively feel confident about your skills and abilities. Now that's the position you want to be in while networking!
Industry trade magazines also provide other wonderful opportunities for job seekers. The most obvious of which are the industry specific
help wanted sections that many have, offering jobs you may not find using traditional job seeking methods.
In addition trade publications offer less obvious opportunities. Their articles can provide wonderful networking leads along with the perfect reasons to give them a call. For example, imagine reading an article about a new program that
a company is mounting in your area of expertise. And suppose the article also quotes an executive of that company. This gives you just the right opportunity to call the executive quoted, offer a compliment on the new program and introduce yourself as someone who might be able to help -- or perhaps might be a good addition to their team. Even if
they don't need to fill a position, they may call you in the future or possibly refer you to someone who does.
Trade Publications Offer Networking Opportunities
In addition, most industry trade publications list a calendar of events or trade shows that can offer you wonderful networking opportunities. And many of these shows
offer free exhibit hall passes just for the asking. The exhibit floor of a trade show is a place where you can meet executives from many of the companies in your field -- all in one place.
So if you don't regularly read your profession's industry trade magazines perhaps now is the time to start!
