Most of us, when we get to work on changing jobs, do it on the sly. We gussy up our CV or LinkedIn profile, make more of an effort to network (possibly the least popular of all career-boosting moves) and scoot off to secret interviews in our lunch break or during pretend doctor's appointments. Then, we deliver our decision to our manager as a fait accompli and work out our notice, often a bit awkwardly, with one foot out the door. See ya!
OPINION: I like makeup, always have. I briefly worked at the Christian Dior counter at Peter Jones in London's Sloane Square when I was a scruffy backpacker. I lived with six other people in a two-bedroom flat in Elephant & Castle, a floor below the elderly gangster 'Mad' Frankie Fraser, but I wore Diorific Lipstick in Jazzy Brown every day. Rolling that heavy gold tube between my fingers made me feel that my life path was more considered and adult than circumstances suggested.
The hotly-anticipated Vogue photo shoot with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is out. The American fashion magazine, which describes our PM as "a 37-year-old with a beaming smile" and also "elvish", photographed her at Bethell's Beach, in a pair of blue Kate Sylvester pants and a flowing trench coat from Harman Grubisa. A profile written by Amelia Lester describes Ardern's rapid ascent to the top job, her relationship with Clarke Gayford and what she sees as New Zealand's role on the world stage.
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".
