Australia’s economy is on track to create the most jobs on record in 2017, with women a major factor behind that growth. About 180,000 roles were taken by females in the first 11 months, almost 12 percent more than men, reflecting greater access to childcare and more flexibility in work hours and location. But stretched finances are also a key factor, particularly in Sydney and Melbourne where it isn’t feasible for families to survive on one salary for too long.
If history is any guide, the Australian job market’s phenomenal pickup in 2017 won’t be repeated this year. Can it buck tradition? Westpac Banking Corp. estimates the current annual jobs growth of 3.2 percent is equivalent to U.S. payrolls adding 4.6 million workers over the same period, and so doesn’t seem sustainable. On the other hand, with Australian vacancies climbing to a record high toward the end of last year, firms’ hiring intentions appear to be holding up.
We’re putting the spotlight on the hottest and most exciting new bands around with our Introducing feature, ready to highlight the artists with the biggest potential to make an impact on their scene. Greyhaven are a radio and arena ready alt-rock quartet who aren’t afraid to throw in heavier riffs yet can can pull off the more fragile and emotional acoustic numbers.
@evgenysblog@WayfarerMarine1@RichardHaass The growth was great from 1999-2008. It’s been weak since and recession now. I say again, where did the free trillion dollars go? Into FSB bank accounts. You think that’s good leadership. I don’t. I think it’s criminal.
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".
