f@h: There are Advantages to Being a Member..?

Hello All
Sorry it's been a while since I last posted here. It's been a rushing about time, what with getting the Yearbook finalised, the Big Hope Congress, this weekends Graduate Association Reunion and the upcoming 2008 Graduations themselves. Still, excuses aside, I've come up with a far better way to post into the Blog using an e-mail link that allows me to post via email rather than having to log-in etc etc. So, this should improve the frequency of our postings... We hope!

We have some excellent news for the membership, and if this isn't proof that being a member brings with it some real-life benefit, then nothing is:

Subject to confirmation it looks like the teaching jobs in Modena, Italy, published in f@h Bulletins #37 and #41 (#41 incidentally, was a resend of #37) has resulted in at least 3 of our membership securing employment. Sandra Atkinson, herself an alumni who runs both a primary and pre-school in Modena, used the services of the Graduate Association, in partnership with Liverpool Hope's Careers Dept, to conduct interviews with prospective candidates. As a result job offers are now being made. Around a dozen candidates competed for these positions but with 3 or more available the odds of being employed were extremely high. Contrast this with the usual 100's of job applicants for a single vacancy and you can quickly see the massive difference this initiative has made to our members.

.....................................................

The Graduate Association publish f@h Bulletins to the main e-mailing list on a regular basis. These bulletins contain all sorts of information and opportunities for the membership, including updates on f@h Membership Benefits, job vacancies, Alumni News etc etc. The content of the f@h Bulletins is growing and changeing as we develop the Association in-line with the needs of the membership. You simply never know when something may turn up of specific interest to YOU! Want to know more about the f@h Bulletins? ... CLICK HERE

If you do not already receive the f@h Bulletins and would like too, or perhaps you have ideas about what you would wish them to contain, then feel free to email us with your details: ... CLICK HERE

Happy hunting folks!
