No matter where you might look, it's evident that we live in uncertain times. Finding new ways to solve towards sustainability could be a path towards a brighter future, and that future is female-led. One of those leaders moving us forward is Halla Tómasdóttir, who is on a mission to build a more gender-balanced world.
We live in a world that is prone to overreaction. Perhaps because of of it, the subtle art of a well placed pause can be a powerful and overlooked negotiating move. It is also surprisingly versatile. A strategic pause can help elegantly close a deal. It can also help you stay firm in your pricing when someone tries to lowball you, or help maintain a professional boundary. However you use it, it's an important client management technique, particularly in dealing with an aggressive client.
When it comes to advice on negotiation, women still get a lot of confusing signals. On occasion, so do men. And it's not their fault. We live in a time where race, gender and societal norms are rapidly changing, and it can be difficult or even paralyzing to choose how to negotiate and appropriately communicate with people. How can we be understood without potentially offending someone or coming across as too aggressive or on the other end, too yielding?
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".
