A new cohort of college graduates is charging out into the workforce. Some will hunt for jobs at start-ups instead of big companies. In fact, according to a 2016 survey by Accenture, only 14 per cent of US graduates want to work at a large firm, while 44 per cent want to work in a start-up or other small enterprise. Going to work at a start-up has perks, but there are downsides, too. Before you assume a start-up is going to be your dream job, make sure you know what you’re getting into.
14% of U.S. graduates want to work at a large firm; 44% want to work in a startup or other small enterprise. But although working at a startup has upsides, there are downsides, too. Make sure you know what you’re getting into. For example, startups offer less structure than established firms. Are you ready to operate with little-to-no feedback, and maybe even no boss? That can be a disorienting feeling for anyone, but even more so if it’s your first job. And what about time off?
“Well, what were they wearing?”As the national climate around sexual assault leads to more conversation, we are offered more opportunities to challenge responses to survivors—which can often be full of blame. We may overhear comments or we notice that comments go unchecked. We see celebrities quietly excused of alleged violence, or a “hands-on” boss go undisciplined.
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".
