The latest study of Southwest Florida's labor market shows employment gaps are growing. The gaps — where there are more jobs than workers — are greatest in health care and retail. The study by Workforce Now identified 5,073 open positions for demand occupations. That number was up 7 percent from a year ago, representing nearly 350 more jobs that the region's employers are struggling to fill. The biggest need? First-line supervisors for retail sales associates. There are 407 open jobs.
The bank attributed the strong quarter to a combination of factors — revenue growth, expense management and tax law changes. Net income in the quarter rose 73 percent over the year to $967,000, up from $408,000 a year ago. In part, the rosier results were due to the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December. Some businesses took a big hit from the legislation in the fourth quarter, while others have reported a benefit.
Naples-based ACI Worldwide took a big hit from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the fourth quarter. The global company, which provides real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, recorded a non-cash charge of $16 million for its deferred tax assets and a cash charge of $21 million for unremitted foreign earnings due to the major tax legislation passed in December.
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".
