Starting a new job can be stressful. So many things to think about, including lingering doubts about whether the move is the right one and the key question of whether or not you will fit in with new colleagues. In a global survey by Webonboarding of 4,000 office workers from the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand, almost four in ten (39%) said they had a problem or issue when starting a new job. And 44% say they had a serious problem either between accepting their offer or starting their job.
The local market fell by as much as 1.2% before regaining some lost ground but still ended the day below the key 5700 point mark on the ASX200. The slide followed the interest rate announcement overnight by the US Federal Reserve where it confirmed it would start reducing the size of its balance sheet. The ANZ was down 0.9% to $29.76, Rio Tinto 0.8% to $65.50 and Fortescue Metals 3% to $5.17. But energy companies picked up on the back of a surge in the price of oil.
The board of directors at Wesfamers, Australia’s biggest private employer and the owner of Coles and Bunnings, have given themselves a pay rise. According to the annual report released today, non-executive directors fees were increased by 4.5% and the chairman’s by 2.5% from January this year.
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".
