Self service job centre

The School of Life is reinventing itself as an alternative job centre throughout April. "We're inviting turning the usual way jobs are advertised on its head. Rather than invite employers to advertise jobs for us to squeeze our ourselves into, we’re inviting you to write  an ad for the job of your dreams, and let employers decide if they are able to offer it to you"


The instructions are simple:

Write your personal job ad, which advertises to the world the kind of person you are and what you care about.

Make sure that your ad includes:

•  Your name or pseudonym (and maybe a personal motto) •  Personal qualities •  Talents •  Values and ambitions •  Anything else you wish (e.g. I want a job that where I laugh a lot, would like to use my Spanish, work abroad, expected salary) •  How you can be contacted

Send in your ads via the blog, or e-mail them to

This is an exciting and very apt idea. Looking forward to reading the entries and submitting my own!

Would you ban kissing in public?

kissMills & Boon came out in protest today against Virgin's ban on public displays of affection in UK station.

“Romantic embraces and passionate kisses are a vital part of life and should never be discouraged. We believe that attempting to restrict passion to certain times or areas is a denial of the human right to express love” says M&B spokeswoman Sarah Ritherdon.

The Virgin move outraged Cheshire travellers who are denied the right to kiss goodbye to their loved ones.

Outraged commuter at Warrington Bank Quay Station said: “There’s enough doom and gloom around at the moment, why are Virgin trying to impose more misery?”

If you're outraged by the breach of our fundamental right to kiss in public, change your facebook profile picture to the poster shown here and spread the word!
