Reaching the end of a job interview, the Director of Human Resources asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer replied "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."
The Director smiled and said "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks of 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 Engineer sits up straight and says "Wow! Are you kidding?"
The interviewer replies "Yeah, but you started it."
