Part of the series "Building Your Happiest and Best Career"This past year, I’ve had countless discussions with midlife colleagues, clients, family and friends about the job search process today. The vast majority of them – in fact, a full 90% of those folks I’ve advised and consulted with who are looking for new jobs – are generally confused and very intimidated by what’s necessary in terms of the process required to land a great new job.
Part of the series “Women, Leadership and Vision”In recent years, a lot has been written about the deep challenges African Americans face in terms of representation and leadership across TV and film both behind the camera and in front of it. But as we’re seeing from the blockbuster success of the film Black Panther, finally, damaging beliefs and misguided fears about the potential public appeal of black lead characters and stories that pivot around them, have been obliterated.
Part of the new series “The Spirituality-Success Connection”In my work as a corporate director, then later as a family therapist, leadership trainer , and career coach for senior professional women, I’ve witnessed firsthand how simple, tactical strategies for leadership growth and business success often fall very short. Suggested actions for personal or organizational growth that are not tied to systemic or internal change often fail miserably in producing lasting growth.
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".
