I sent this joke out on my Humour Mailing List this morning, and thought it’s good enough to share here:
At the end of a job interview, the human resources manager asked a young engineer, ‘And what starting salary are you looking for?’
To which the engineer replied, ‘About $125,000 a year, depending on your benefits package.’
The interviewer replied, ‘Well, what would you say to a package of five-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental insurance, a company matching retirement fund up to 50 percent of your salary and a company car leased every two years, say a red Corvette?’
The recent college grad sat up in amazement. ‘Wow, are you kidding?’ he asked.
‘Yeah,’ the interviewer replied, ‘but you started it.’
