    So I have interviews coming up and I want to work in consulting, specifically the healthcare space. I read a lot of news (Google News, BBC, listen to NPR) but I want to read news specific to the healthcare/pharma/biotech sector and am at a loss. I've looked around and Forbes Science section seems pretty good but I kind of want something that looks at industry trends as well as news relevant to specific companies. Any thoughts on resources?

    I got that via quick look around American Journalism Review website.

    I have an RSS reader and subscribe to the RSS feed from pretty much all the major news organizations (CNN, NYT, BBC, Yahoo, Reuters, ABC, FT, etc.), so I don't have to visit each site and scroll through everything, but just read titles and a description of the article.

    If it sounds appealing, I'll check it out. Using the RSS in that way simply gets you the most amount of info in the most effective way.

    Science Magazine has a nice summary of science-related news, that news outlets sometimes pick up....

    Also try the Washington Post

    Christian Science Monitor. Do not let the title fool you.

    digg

    because you get priceless stories like this one:

    Woman Finds Boyfriends Porn Stash KILLS HIM

    "Wait until you see the picture of the woman. There will be no doubt in your mind why he needed such a big porn stash..."

    Gotta throw love for Digg as well, however, I wouldn't really call it "news" as much as the rest of the sites mentioned here :) It's easily the most interesting/entertaining site each day though.

    By far one of the best sources out there...In fact many of our national papers get their news from CSM as well...The name has always put people off but in terms of quality and some objectivity they are one of the better US sources for international news.

    Google news and Google Finance. Also, Reuters which has frequent updates of the stock market indexes. Google news is also especially useful for tracking topics of special interest to you.
