Switzerland, Denmark and Belgium were rated the top three countries, while 11 of the top 15 were located in Europe. Australia dropped three spots compared to last year’s report, coming in at 19th, falling below Cyprus and Iceland, which retained their 17th and 18th positions respectively. Ireland climbed up three spots to take 14th position. However, Australia still ranked better than the UK (21st).
TWO countries known for crappy weather — Ireland and Iceland — have been proclaimed as being better than Australia and its sunshine when it comes to being good places to work. The World Talent Ranking 2017 report, compiled by the IMD World Competitiveness Centre , finds Australia is not as alluring as it used to be for jobseekers when it comes to attracting, retaining and developing staff.
AN end-of-year rush to hire new workers before Christmas has seen the number of job advertisements increase in all but one sector in October. SEEK reports an overall 16.1 per cent rise in new job advertisements listed last month, compared to October, 2016,It can take several weeks for the recruitment process to go from start to finish, as employers take time to review job applications and conduct interviews. So for new workers to start in January, roles typically need to be advertised in October.
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".
