Industry and Professional Associations, and Unions

The websites of industry associations, professional associations and unions offer a wealth of useful information. Browse these websites to stay up to date with current activities and trends.

Use the members’ links in online directories to contact employers directly. Or search for leads on finding work.

Here’s an example:

  • A graphic designer who is browsing an online industry newsletter finds an item about a colleague who has started up a consulting business. The designer realizes there might be a position open in the company where her colleague used to work. She calls a contact in the company to ask about a possible opening.

Industry associations

Industry or sector association websites will keep you up to date with current activities and trends. 

Professional associations

Professional association websites include news items relevant to their members. Some also offer networking services and job postings.


Union websites post news articles, job openings and other information for their members.
