Halifax has increased the proportion of graduates accepting job offers afterrevamping its image and changing recruitment procedures. Group graduate recruitment manager Martyn Steele said the bank decided tochange its corporate image after research revealed graduates had a poorperception of it, describing it as dull, old and in decline. In response, Halifax introduced new corporate advertising, which usedemployees rather than actors. This idea was mirrored in recruitment advertisingand on the website. “In the new graduate scheme, we really focused on people in an openway, using tongue-in-cheek anecdotes to show we were real people with a senseof humour,” said Steele. The bank also introduced a business simulation exercise as part of itsselection process, based around running a coffee shop for a day, designed toencourage graduates to be creative. Steele said, “If you want to recruit graduates, you have to give themthe chance to shine or otherwise what’s the point? If you can’t do that in HR,where can you do it?” Only two graduates refused Halifax job offers this year compared to 18 theprevious year. last_img read more

German humour, part 2

first_imgA bit better this. The originally-named satirical blog Satire Blog thinks the top dogs should rename Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport “Willy Brandt Airport”, “Helmut Kohl Airport”, or “Al-Qaida Airport. We’ll chase you into the sky”, according the decision makers’ political stances. I’d say Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, which Ryanair fly to, should be renamed “Hahn Airport: Nowhere near Frankfurt”, as that’s where it is (3-4 hours by train in fact). And London Luton should just be “Luton”, or perhaps “Inverness Luton”.Back to political themes, anyone for “Heathrow Cameron Airport”? It changes its name depending on passengers’ own preferences.Please post suggestions below. PS I have discovered that Germany has a whole blog dedicated to Wales . For some reason.

He’s got a sculpted body, a model-gorgeous girlfriend and a to-die-for apartment. There’s just one snag: Patrick can’t get the blood out of his $5000 suits, because he also has a murderous, psychopathic alter ego that he hides from his friends and co-workers.

Rivers must do more to attract patrons

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Rivers casino needs to smarten up. I can’t believe that they can’t see why they are losing people. First up, get a buffet: This is a must. Many people I know will not go back because of this reason. People don’t want to pay $15 or more for a pizza or $25 for a pork chop. It seems to me that they made a deal with the restaurants that they would not put a buffet in. If your food is good, it shouldn’t matter. Also charging a $5 fee at an ATM to get your money? You can’t bleed people because you have debts to pay. The old saying is still good today: It takes money to make money. Stop playing games and start showing some appreciation for the people of this town.Anthony J.
