Hi folks,

With the news thoroughly full of the Tory leadership contest – was Rory Stewart an MI6 spy or not is about as thrilling as it gets – it seems like a great time to look away from the news for a bit.

Luckily, we’ve been busy putting not just great jobs but also some really useful blog content on our website. If you’d like some tips on getting the most from your interview, what you should (and most definitely shouldn’t!) put on your CV and how to really stand out among candidates for a role, we can help you.

We’d also love to hear from you about what content would be most useful to you – what are your burning job-seeking queries? Drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll get on the case!

Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

Joke: The priest and the taxi driver 

A priest and a taxi driver die at the same time and both go to heaven. St. Peter welcomes them and shows them to their homes.

For the taxi driver, a beautiful villa looking over a gorgeous field of clouds. "Thank you," the ecstatic taxi driver said.

Anticipating an even bigger mansion, the priest was dismayed when they arrived at a small 1-bedroom apartment.

"St. Peter, I'm a little puzzled," the priest began. "As a clergyman, I devoted decades of my life solely to serving the Lord. How come the taxi driver got a villa, and for me, only a small apartment?"

St. Peter smiled. "Up here, we go by results. While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed."

If you've got a joke you'd like to suggest for 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!
