Most work sectors have professional magazine publications both in printed and/or digital formats with news and discussion about what’s going on in the sector. Many also have free digital newsletters that you can sign up to receive.
These are a great way for you to build your knowledge and commercial awareness of the sector you want to work in.
The best way to find these publications is to search by sector, for example “teaching”, “human resource management” or “science”. Some examples:
- Times Higher Education Supplement
- International Accountant
- PR Week
- HR Magazine
- The Scientist
Don’t forget that many of these also have Social Media accounts where they publish up to date news and information.
Get on the list, get connected, and stand out from the crowd during the job application process with your up to date knowledge and commercial awareness!
