Some first-year MBA students from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business walked away from the Sept. 28-29 National Black / Prospanica career fair in Philadelphia with internship offers from companies like Johnson & Johnson and ExxonMobil. Even better, all of us managed to get our hands on all sorts of free gizmos, gadgets and other swag.
On the heels of Microchips Biotech's $35 million partnership with Teva ($TEVA) to apply the company's electronic drug delivery implant for administration over months to years toward at least one disease area, the company announced that Cheryl Blanchard, the former chief scientific officer of Zimmer, will become its new CEO. "I am thrilled to be joining Microchips to lead the company to the next stage of commercializing game-changing products in women's health," Blanchard said in a statement.
I knew our team did something right when I saw the Pepsi executives deep in thought following the class of 2019’s full-time MBA case competition presentation, held Aug. 25. Later, Dean Alex Triantis came up and congratulated us on our presentation, another good sign. Finishing in second place in the class-wide case competition to cap off orientation was a great way launch my first year at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
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".
