Friday Humor: What NOT to Say in a Job Interview

Starting Salary: Friday Humor #14

Cartoon JobInterview Grateful Dead 

“What starting salary are you looking for?” the head of human resources asks the newly graduated engineer at the end of a job interview.

Going for it, the guy says, “Well, sir, I was thinking about $125,000, depending on the benefits package.”

“Okay,” the HR director says. “How about five weeks’ vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, 100% company match for your 401(k) and a Porsche for your company car?”

The engineer gasps and says, “Wow! Are you kidding?” “Yeah,” he replies. “But you started it.”
