“The future of work,” it’s the latest buzz phrase. Five years ago, that meant telecommuting, going paperless, shared workspaces and in-house coffee bars. Today, that topic means considering artificial intelligence, tenuous job security, contingent labor, robotics, job migration, talent underutilization, independent contractors on digital-only platforms (ever heard of Upwork? ) and even workplace monitoring (Can your boss really ask you to wear a tracking device?).
Business travel can introduce you to new colleagues, concepts, and markets, but if you approach it unprepared it can also be an expensive and tiring experience. I'm Tom Geller. Over 20 years of frequent business travel has given me a broad perspective on how to work effectively in unfamiliar surroundings. I'll share my knowledge and strategies with you in this course. We'll start with preparations before your trip that will save you time, money, and hassle.
Whenever I teach military reintegration or transition courses, I’m inevitably challenged by participants who question whether being found online really matters that much. “After all,” they argue, “my reputation and track record should speak for itself.”I understand the logic: You build a solid reputation as a leader, problem solver, trained and skilled worker, and adaptive and resilient thinker during your time in uniform. That counts for a lot when you transition to a civilian career.
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".
