My supervisor has a habit of bullying me at work. I find his actions quite disturbing and I do not know how to handle this better. Please advise. Bosses are a necessary evil at work. They have the prerogative to influence decisions since they are charged with directing and controlling resources. They are also required to plan for the organisation- they can influence who gets a pay rise and those who should be fired. Many employees envy such titles and would do whatever it takes to get them.
I am required to start work within two weeks. I am, however, hesitate to inform my current supervisor about my exit. What should I do? Finding new opportunities has always been a dream for many employees, especially young professionals and graduates. They envisage it as an opportunity to explore their potential at a younger age before retiring to pursue individual interests. Unfortunately, many offers are always timely; some hirers often need people, who are ready to start work immediately.
Being promoted to a senior position comes with bigger responsibilities. The actions and decisions made will obviously impact you and you will be judged in the process by all, even those who may not understand your work requirements. Leadership can be likened to soccer where numerous comments and instructions are offered by fans, including those who just watch the game on TV. But like a soldier at the battlefield, you need to remain steadfast. Draw up a plan to succeed. Do not give in to negativity.
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".
