Solicitor Jacqui Fetchet, 27, is one of thousands of young women entering professional occupations at younger ages. At what age are you most likely to be a sportsperson, barrister or bus driver? Turns out the answers can be very different, depending on your gender. See for yourself. The charts generated below show the age distribution of workers in different jobs. The higher the peak, the more workers that age (as a percentage of all workers in that job).
Brendan Evans' introduction to working life will feel familiar to many. A trolley boy at 14, then a pizza boy at 16, he now works as a kitchenhand at The Dunkirk pub in the inner-Sydney suburb of Pyrmont. "It can be a bit of a rush, especially on Fridays … We do about 200 meals an hour, hour-and-a-half, on a good day. That can be strenuous because I'm running to get food for the chef and trying to keep up with the plates, stuff like that," the 19-year-old said.
A new survey of thousands of young Australians may give us a better sense of what makes them tick. Working out what's going on in the minds of younger Australians can be both confusing and frustrating. Are they happy, worried, feeling like they don't belong, or all of the above? A new survey of 47,000 children across Australia, aged between 6 and 18, may give us a better sense of what makes them tick.
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".
