OSCPA member Irv Dennis’ search for meaningful work in retirement came to an end this past spring in the form of a phone call from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “They called to see if I’d be interested in the CFO position, so I went on an interview to see what it was all about,” said Dennis, a CPA. “I flew to Washington and met with the HUD team, and what was supposed to be a 45-minute meeting turned into three hours.”They offered him the job several days later.
The secret to becoming a more dynamic, efficient organization could be in your tax strategy. “True tax planning can sometimes be overlooked if one is just focused on tax compliance,” said Susan Allen, CPA/CITP, CGMA, senior manager with the AICPA Tax Practice & Ethics team. An emerging area in the tax profession called “tax information and operations management” (TIOM) focuses on enabling tax operations to run as efficiently as possible to add business value.
There are certain moments in life you get one shot at doing right. Welcoming a new employee on their first day is one of them. “When starting a new job, you want to feel really good about your decision because that’s a big moment of change,” said Miranda Hawk, business development manager at Brixey & Meyer in Dayton.
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".
