A recruiter asks a recent university graduate: “What starting salary are you looking for?”
“In the range of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package,” the applicant replies.
The recruiter says: “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50 per cent of salary, and a company car leased every two years – say, a red Corvette?”
The applicant sits up straight and says: “Wow! Are you kidding?”
And the recruiter replies: “Yeah, but you started it.”
A job applicant was asked: “What would you consider to be your main strengths and weaknesses?”
“Well,” he began. “My main weakness would definitely be my issues with reality. Sometimes I have a little trouble telling what’s real and what’s not.”
“Okay,” said the interviewer. “And what are your strengths?”
A man was in a job interview when the manager handed him his laptop and said: “I want you to try and sell this to me.”
So the man put it under his arm, walked out of the building and went home. Eventually the manager called the man’s phone and said: “What the hell do you think you’re doing! Bring back my laptop!”
The man said: “$200 and it’s yours.”
