How to Find Industry-Specific News and Reports 

1. Track down "who cares?" about the industry.

  • Are there industry associations? (Google industry name + association + to find them. Example: restaurant association
  • Are there government regulators? (For restaurants, think of the local Public Health agency or the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). You can Google industry name + government regulators to find some quickly.)

Once you find these organizations, look on their websites for sections called News, Reports, Resources, Education, etc. Some of these resources will only be available to members of the trade/industry association, but many will be available for free.

2. Do some advanced Google searching. Examples:

workplace harassment

This search returns news and reports from a variety of national and local organizations and associations.

"sexual harassment" filetype:pdf
