Few moments in life are more rewarding and exciting than being named CEO of a major national brand company. Moving into the corner office can represent the capstone of years of diligent service, either in the company you’re going to lead or one that you’ve known and admired for much of your life. It’s your chance to take the organization from the achievements of the past into a bright future of unlimited possibilities.
Digital technology has transformed the way in which organization's think of managing their talent, projects, and global presence. The technology enables organizations to transform themselves into a highly adaptable, and change-ready enterprise. This requires a workforce that is easily adaptable and can change with the dynamic marketplace. The requirement for an agile highly adaptable workforce gave rise to what many call the Liquid Workforce.
There are many reasons organizations set out for a merger or acquisition. It’s a business tool to grow the bottom line by obtaining key processes, achieving economies of scale, or realizing quick growth. Time and time again, research demonstrates the importance of cultural integration to merger and acquisition success. With over 30% of mergers failing simply because of incompatible cultures, why does this often become an overlooked piece to the success of a merger or acquisition?
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".
