A written self-evaluation submitted to your manager seems like a cruel trick question, or at the very least, a hard line to walk. If you’re too self-congratulatory, you come off as a delusional blowhard. But if you’re too negative, you risk undermining yourself — and your career prospects. Some companies such as General Electric and Adobe have dropped the traditional annual performance review altogether in favor of more frequent check-ins, says Dan Schawbel, research director at Future Workplace.
Over the course of 14 seasons of Top Chef, fans have become familiar with Gail Simmons at the judging table. But with her just-released first cookbook, Bringing It Home: Favorite Recipes from a Life of Adventurous Eating, she’s excited to show fans a side of her that they don’t usually get to see.
“We’re in a digital revolution,” says Hirsch. “Everything is changing quickly.” That means new grads need to figure out the tech skills that are most appealing to employers. According to the just-released top 10 tech skills in demand list from the NYC Labor Market Information Service, the Microsoft Office trifecta (Excel, PowerPoint and Word) zoomed to the head of the pack. “This suite is valuable,” says Dan Schawbel, research director at Future Workplace.
@KTwaronite_EY Hi Karyn! I'm writing an article for a newspaper about paternity leave, and I was hoping you're available this week for a brief interview about E&Y's policy. Thanks so much for your time, looking forward to hearing from you!
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".
