If you’re a professional who wants to stay on top or you are searching for a career in a particular industry, One of the best ways to do this is by utilizing a readily available resource that is chock-full of valuable content that will keep you informed and in the loop. I’m talking about industry trade publications.
Nearly every industry has at least one trade publication that professionals subscribe to and follow to keep up with current news and trends in their chosen field.
Trade publications include both electronic and print magazines, periodicals, white papers, multimedia webinars, audio and video podcasts and other media. They are a great source of news and content about products, services, issues and trends in the industries they cover. Of course, they are also full of self-promotion and sales pitches, but if you are a professional, who needs to keep up with what’s happening in a specific market or industry, it’s readily available to you so you can improve job skills, market yourself to potential employers or start your own business.
These publications are a great way to educate yourself because you can peruse them at your leisure. You can subscribe to as many as you need or want or you can focus on the ones that are specific to your area of the business.
The best thing about these publications is that nearly all of them are FREE to professionals who qualify. If you work in an industry or field covered in a particular publication, all you have to do is fill out a qualifying form to show that you meet the requirements as an industry professional.
Trade publications are not aimed at the general public, so the form is necessary to filter out those who are not qualified. It takes a few minutes to fill out the form, but once you do and are approved, you are in. Overall, it is well worth the investment. After all, they are free, and you can’t beat free.
I subscribe to several trade publications myself. Some I read regularly. Others I use as a reference when needed. All of them connect me to the industry I am in and provide content I can use to help me stay informed.
All you need to do is go to jobcastcentral.tradepub.com, browse through the list of trade publications available, fill out the form to qualify and your done. There is no credit card required and no payment to make. The trade publications are free to qualified professionals.
Free trade publications and technical downloads for professionals
My son and I like free stuff. We’ve been fans of freebies for years. Always in search of a bargain, we have taken advantage of many opportunities to obtain something for nothing or almost nothing. Whether it’s free food samples at the local warehouse club or free trinkets at a trade show, free stuff is fun to acquire. It’s kind of a hobby of ours, and we are always searching for the next free thing.
Now we’re taking our hobby to the next level. After all, what’s more fun than finding a great deal? Sharing the experience with the world, of course! The Free Stuff Show is a podcast for freebie fans who are searching for the next free thing. This web site is the home of the show and a place to network with other fans of freebies and exchange hints, tips and sources of free stuff with one another. By creating a community for freebie fans everywhere, we can all find free stuff together!
Welcome to the world of FREE stuff!
