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 $225,000 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 two years – say, a red Corvette?”

The Engineer sat up straight and said,

“Wow! Are you kidding?”
