Staying on Top of Local Business News

If you are interested in regional business news, there are excellent sources of information you may not be able to find in the national newspapers (such as the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Los Angles Times, etc).  Newslink is an online directory to find local business publications.  The listings are organized by state.

In Colorado, we are fortunate to have two wonderful publications that can be viewed in print or online. They are  ColoradoBiz and Denver Business Journal.  Whether you are seeking employment in the business world or interested in news about local business, both newspapers are excellent sources of timely information.   In ColoradoBiz, you will find search tabs for small business, tech, finance, real estate, M&A, and more.   Denver Business Journal contains similar categories but it also includes a separate section a for sales and marketing.

Whether you are a newcomer to a region or city or a longtime resident, you will find a wealth of information you probably won’t find in a popular city newspaper.  For people seeking employment, it seems to be the best kep secret.  Look for companies that may be moving to your area, expanding their headquarters, or companies who have been awarded new government contracts.  The job seeker can get a jump on the competition by approaching potential companies before new jobs are posted on the job boards.

So, find out what’s really going on in your local busines world, by reading business-specific newspapers in your area.
