The things you have to know before you start outsourcing business tasks and setting up a remote team. Remote teams are no longer just the domain of small businesses. Even large companies such as United Health, Xerox, American Express and Deutsche Bank are integrating remote teams in their workforce. Remote teams contribute to the profitability of the business because it reduces cost of operation, increases productivity and lowers the employee turnover.
In a pivotal scene from the Oscar award winning movie “Creed”, Sylvester Stallone’s iconic character, Rocky Balboa, finally agrees to train Adonis Creed. Rocky writes Adonis’ training program on a piece of paper. Adonis pulls out his smartphone and takes a picture of the training program and returns the paper to Rocky. Befuddled, Rocky asks, “Don’t you want this?” Adonis says, “It’s okay. It’s in the Cloud”.
The résumé is your first point of contact with a recruiter. Its content, structure, and format will determine whether you move to the interview stage or the filing cabinet. But recruiters have to go through other résumés. They won't have much time to review yours. Whether it is 6.25 seconds, as revealed by a study by The Ladders, or 30 seconds, time is limited. Make those seconds count by presenting a résumé that will stand out and grab the attention of the recruiter.
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".
