"I feel overqualified at the moment working in a supermarket because for this job I'm doing now I don't necessarily need a degree. " Poppy Hunt would definitely like to earn a bit more money. She graduated in Fine Art from the University of the West of England six months ago. She's currently working as a customer services assistant for Sainsbury's in Bristol. Poppy wants to apply for museum and art gallery jobs.
Aldi may have seen its UK profits drop last year, but shoppers spent an extra £1bn there compared with 2016. We meet the man driving the discount supermarket's rapid growth. Aldi doesn't sell a very wide range of products so the bar is set high for any new one to make it to the shelves. It's the UK chief executive Matthew Barnes who does the final test in the sleek tasting kitchens at its Atherstone HQ. He not only personally approves every new product, but sets the price for it, too.
Getting the right workers when you need them. Sounds simple. Staff rotas are often the stuff of nightmares, especially if they're based on shifts at all hours of the day and night. Our rota manager here in the BBC's Business Unit deserves a medal. She's already started the dreaded Christmas rota. All her TV presenters want the whole week off, but there's hours of output to fill. Her spreadsheets are vast and multicoloured.
Just interviewed Charlie Mayfield from John Lewis partnership. Selling groceries has been a bit of a "bearfight". On Waitrose: "we actually think it compares very well when you look at comparable periods to most of the other retailers who have reported."
A mixed bag of retail news this morning. Xmas disappointing for M&S, clothing down again and poor performance in food. Tesco sales up, not as much as expected. John Lewis firmly in the winners camp. Waitrose sales up, but weaker than other players.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
