Hi folks,

First, a very important request; please log into your Ex-Mil Recruitment account and update your details. With the new GDPR regulations about to kick in, anyone who hasn't logged into their accounts for a period of time will be removed from our system. We'd hate to lose touch, so please take just a few minutes to make sure your details are up to date!

And while you're there, with the first day of spring this week (believe it or not!), it's a great time to spring clean your CVs and make sure they're up to date . It's really important that your CV has details of all your work experience, qualifications and training in order to allow us to match your skills to those being sought by employers.

The news has been grimly fascinating of late with the Russians accused of trying to murder one of their own on British soil with a deadly nerve agent. The international outcry did nothing to dent Vladamir Putin, riding high on yet another presidential victory. As we wait to see how this plays out, you can have your say on events on our Facebook page, as ever remembering to keep it clean and polite. 

And finally, our sincere condilences to the family of the Red Arrows engineer killed in Tuesday's crash. A truly sad loss. 

Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

5 good reasons for doing a university management degree online

  1. To get significantly more money
  2. If you want a career, not just a job
  3. To make resettlement much easier
  4. For international opportunities
  5. Your Services role makes it uniquely possible at this time.

www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com  works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place. There is no charge for this work (i.e. it is paid by the university’s online provider) so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.

The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.

One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start immediately after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: Little Johnny

The teacher said to his class one day, "Please stand up, anyone who thinks they're stupid."

Nobody stood up so the teacher said, "I'm sure there are some stupid students in this class!"

At this point Little Johnny stood up.

The teacher said, "Oh Johnny! So you think you're stupid then?"

Little Johnny replied, "No, I just felt bad that you were standing up on your own."

If you want to contribute to the jokes in this newsletter, just send them in — email us at:…[email protected]

For various reasons we can't always include them in the newsletter, but we always appreciate them!
