Saudi Arabia, with a huge population of tech-savvy young people and vast financial resources, is eager to form partnerships with Silicon Valley venture capitalists to invest in its local talent. But the VCs have some questions. Specifically they want to know about the role of women in the desert kingdom, says Abdullah Al-Swaha, the Saudi minister of communication and information technology.
Millennials, the conventional wisdom holds, value diversity and seek it out when applying for jobs. Or maybe not. In a July survey, just 2% of interns at EY—the accounting and consulting firm formerly called Ernst & Young—said they prioritized a company’s reputation for diversity and inclusion when looking for an employer. It trailed other factors like opportunities for growth and advancement, selected by 84%; flexibility (59%); and parental leave benefits (16%).
It’s bad enough Equifax’s security breach left the financial data of 143 million Americans potentially exposed. Making matters worse was the credit bureau’s clumsy and confusing response. After waiting 40 days to alert the public to the possibility their data could be compromised, the company initially asked users to wait another five days to find out of they were in jeopardy, and to waive their rights to sue Equifax if they accepted the company’s offer of free credit monitoring.
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".
