Tricks of the Trade

College classes do a great job in preparing students for the real-world.  However, in today’s competitive job market, good grades are not enough to help you land a job. To supplement your GPA and work-related activities, consider subscribing to a trade magazine. Trade magazines are a great way to stay on top of news in the industry you wish to join post-college and you may find job listings in them as well.

Not sure which magazines to look for? Ask a professor for recommendations or ask someone who works in the industry now. If you are unsure what you want to do after graduation, gather recommendations from current professionals and browse the publications’ websites to help narrow down your choices. Many magazines allow you to read a limited number of articles online, which is great for a college student’s tight budget. If the magazine offers a free email newsletter, sign up for that so you are alerted when new content is posted.
