I was interviewing for jobs this past week and at all of the interviews, I was presented with questions about object oriented techniques and C#. When asked about overriding a method on a class that wasn't marked as virtual, I informed the interviewers that it can't be done. I didn't realize that the interviewers were considering my answer to be wrong until yesterday when an interviewer presented to me the answer that he was looking for.
Many people may find themselves wondering what to do with a 401(k) from a previous employer. Perhaps they left the company last year, or maybe it’s been more than a decade since they left. Either way, the money is still there, and they’re just not sure if they have options or what those options might be. Chances are, you’re not paying attention to an old 401(k). Most likely you aren’t in control of it right now because you’re subject to the rules of that specific company’s 401(k).
Consider the following scenarios: You’ve worked hard all your life, been careful with your finances and are now looking forward to retirement. You have a general sense of how your assets are performing, but could use some additional guidance. Or, perhaps you haven’t been much of a saver and you are now playing catch-up and have fears of running out of money in retirement. Both scenarios are ideal for consulting with a financial advisor. Yet – many people don’t.
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".
