It may seem early to be thinking about Christmas shopping, but if you’re looking for a temporary job for the holidays, act now. Much of the hiring happens in September. That gives companies lead time to find and train the right workers before the busy months start. All kinds of jobs are available, not just folding sweaters at the mall. “Everybody thinks retail,” said Sean Akin, branch manager of staffing company PrideStaff. “That’s not true here in Fresno.
Fig Garden Village’s newest store is open and long-awaited changes are finally happening at the shopping center. Paper Source opened last weekend and local retailers – Aporjon Leather & Luggage, Heart & Sole Comfort Shoes and a Deli Delicious – are settling into their new homes in a different part of the center as they make way for other retailers. Perhaps the most eagerly awaited new store, Anthropologie, isn’t open yet.
The Tower District is probably going to look a little different the next time you set foot in it. Major openings, closings and moves are changing the landscape of Fresno’s hippest neighborhood. New coffee shops are popping up and high-profile restaurants and bars like Livingstone’s are inching their way toward reopening. Some regular Tower anchors — Me N Eds, Brass Unicorn, the Bank of America — are making big changes, too.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
