Agents can earn shares for joining, staying, closing deals and helping the agency grow. And it's working, Russell says. Must be. Fathom placed No. 3 on our largest employers' list in its debutante try. "People stay and refer good agents to us," Russell says. Last year, Fathom recruited 150 agents nationwide. Russell expects that number to rise to 225 this year. "We've been named an Inc. 500 fastest-growing company in America four years in a row," Russell says. "We looked it up.
By now, Watermark Community Church must be thinking it's been ordained to our No. 2 spot in its size category. That's where it has landed every year since 2011 â€” four times as a small company and now twice as a midsize one. This kind of consistency seems heaven sent. Led by Todd Wagner, the charismatic 54-year-old senior pastor, the three-campus megachurch sees its business as one of changing lives. And its 200-plus employees see doing God's work as a labor of love.
Last year was one of exponential growth for Cornea Associates of Texas. It added two surgeons to itsstaff of five and built a full-time surgical center in Plano. Exciting times — but not without stress. The number of patients grew 20 percent overnight, with more coming on board every month, says practice administrator Jennifer Fleming. The ophthalmology practice, which specializes in Lasik surgery, couldn't hire qualified staff with the necessary cultural fit fast enough.
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".
