The Interview



Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human
Resources Person asked a young Engineer
fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were
you looking for?"

The Engineer said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000
a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a
package of 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full
medical and dental, a company matching retirement
fund for 50% of your salary, and a company car
leased every 2 years -- say, a red Corvette?"

The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
