Policies and good intentions will not be enough to drive change, expert panel agreesBritish businesses must be persuaded or forced to publish data on the numbers of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) employees in their ranks to tackle a ‘dire’ lack of inclusion, according to an influential panel.
“Change in the modern workplace,” says Swann, “is never complete.” A whole industry has sprung up, he notes with weary disdain, to instruct us how to harness new technologies and methodologies to make employees happier and more productive. But in this refreshingly jargon-free book, Swann does more than just show us why the future of work is simpler and easier than we ever imagined – he also gives us the tools to get there.
How algorithms are rewriting the rules of recruitment (And what that means for your job...)A job at Google is meant to be the very apex of aspiration for the ambitious modern worker. But not, it seems, if you’re working in Google’s recruitment function.
@LabourFootball So glad this is getting attention. No @AFCWimbledon fan wants to keep on banging the drum about historical injustice when we have present day football to get on with. But the authorities insist on dragging it back up. @EFL stance is utterly indefensible and petty.
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".
