Reaching the end of his job interview, the personal recruiter asked the
young engineer fresh out of college, “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 five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full
medical and dental, company matching retirement funds to 50% of salary, a
company leased Corvette every two years, and the salary you asked for?”
The engineer sat up straight and said, “Wow! Are you kidding?” And the
interviewer replied, “Yeah…but you started it!”
