Stacy Brown-Philpot could have stayed in The Dream Job: “I had been at Google when it grew from 1,000 employees to 50,000,” says Brown-Philpot, 41. “I had this corner office, and everybody was like, ‘This is amazing.’ I felt comfortable, extremely comfortable, until I [realized], I’m supposed to be taking chances. I said, ‘I love this, but this isn’t what I’m supposed to be doing.’ ” She had already made a big move once—leaving investment banking to go to grad school.
Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have a stake in the issue of relationship abuse: He wrote the 1994 Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), which funds services for victims and pushes to put more assailants behind bars. And as an English teacher not far from the White House, Dr. Biden has had students confide in her about their abuse. The Bidens' first joint print interview since the inauguration appeared in the June 2011 issue of Glamour .
Anna Auerbach, 34, and Annie Dean, 31, knew the corporate leadership track for women was broken—they saw it in the absence of female leaders in their own fields (consulting and real estate law, respectively). Then they experienced why: When they had kids, juggling family and corporate schedules started to feel impossible. “I had billion dollar deals on my plate that I was trying to close as a corporate attorney, and a ten month old child who I never saw,” says Dean.
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".
