Lisa Pearson - Lifestyle Correspondent




Lisa Pearson was our guest tonight talking about applying for a job and how to approach the interview.

Social Media
Be careful what you post on Facebook/Twitter as many employers will check your details on there

Be on time
if you cannot be on time for an interview what does it say about you arriving for work on time?

Be honest
Do not lie in your application it is easy nowadays to seek information for an employer

Appearance
Think about your appearance before you go, wearing jeans and a T shirt is probably not giving the best impression

The Radio Verulam Film Guide: 17th October 2014

This week saw Danny away from the studio as he had to bail his eldest son out of jail again. The little tyke, who turns 9 this coming Wednesday, was caught trying to stuff eighteen dogs into a blender in search for the ultimate 'Slush Puppy' (his words, not mine). Danny Junior, or Danny Hannibal McGyver Rocky Smith Jr. to give him his full title, has been in trouble with the police before. In June he went for a joyride on a donkey he stole from Brighton beach, making it all the way to Dover before being caught, and just last year he was caught attempting to hijack an EasyJet flight to Fano. Danny blames the influence of his godfather, Simon Carver, on the boy, who he insists was fine before Simon took him to Vegas for his 3rd birthday.

Ok, that was a lie, but Alex was in the chair this evening to talk with Simon about the UK box office top 10, the new releases and Simon's pick of films on TV for the coming week.
