Welcome to the updated "Editor's Buzz," now a blog. As editor-in-chief of Lab Manager Magazine, I have a unique bird's eye view on the world of lab management. With this perspective, I will be weighing in on a variety of topics that should be of keen interest to lab managers. While contributing writer John Borchardt will focus on management and staffing matters on his blog (Lab Management Matters), I will cast a wider net to include topics such as "Tips for getting the most out of trade shows," "Keeping clutter at bay," and "Tracking grant dollars." I will also use this platform to point out new features of the site and on-line only articles of interest, as well as timely industry news and events. I will also create conversations on topics of interest based on reader feedback. For example, one reader recently challenged an interviewing technique author Ron Pickett recommended in his October article, "Honing Your Interviewing Skills." I will share that letter along with Ron's response and then ask readers to weigh in. Keep an eye out for that blog entry next week. Until then, say goodbye to the old style "Buzz" and hello to the new blog-style Buzz!
PS. We have included the previous Editor's Buzzes below so feel free to comment on any of the past topics or future blog posts.
