That’s Quite a Job

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Manager asked the hot-shot young Engineer, fresh out of MIT, “And what starting salary were you looking for?”

The engineer coolly 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, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years – for starters, say, a red Corvette?”

The young engineer tried to control his excitement, but sat straight up and said, “Wow! Are you kidding?”

“Yeah,” the interviewer smiled, “But you started it.”
