[photopress:Corvette_20Big_20Red.jpg,full,alignright]Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources person (that which we used to call personnel manager) asked the young MBA fresh out of university, ‘And what starting salary were you looking for?’
The candidate said, ‘In the neighborhood of US$125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.’
The HR person 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 — say, a red Corvette?’
The graduate sat up straight and said, ‘Wow! Are you kidding?’
And the HR Person said, ‘Certainly, …but you started it.’
