Another potential blow for Uber. Right now, the company is trying to rebuild a culture racked by sexual harassment and sex discrimination allegations and CEO Travis Kalanick's resignation. Not to mention successive other misclassification cases that have poked holes in the independent contractor defense. Uber has racked up a few losses in New York over unemployment payments. If the current decision is accepted after the discovery phase, it could cause major problems for the company.
One of recruiting's biggest challenges is cutting through the everyday noise (including other ads) to grab the attention of potential candidates. Emerging technologies on the resume-sorting end, including machine-learning AI, seek to save recruiters time by floating up the best possible candidates from a large pool. But when that pool is small — or in some cases, perhaps dry — recent innovations have sought to better pinpoint those who may be skilled and interested.
Interest in higher education continues to grow, especially because it remains a key to social mobility. Those with a college education tend to make more money in the long-term. But for employers, that interest provides an opportunity to both provide a benefit to employees and improve the quality of their talent pools. Some blue-collar employers have noticed their employees' desire to improve their prospects via education, and have offered specialized credentialing programs to help those workers.
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".
