Tips for Searching the News

Searching for news about foreign companies often requires extensive digging through many sources.

Be creative in setting up your search. Follow some of these tips:

1. Search multiple databases. You never know which newspaper or magazine will cover your company.

2. Search trade journals and industry newsletters. Look for information about the company's products or brands as well as the company itself.

3. Search local and regional news. If the company is private or operates regionally, search the company's hometown paper.

4. Search for news about company executives. Often companies are closely identified with their CEO. Search by the CEO's name rather than the Company name.
