Job Interview

Reaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked a young engineer fresh out of MIT what kind of a salary he was looking for.

"In the neighborhood of $250,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

"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?"

"Wow! Are you kidding?"

"Yeah, but you started it."

Nice post,

A job interview is an important part of our professional life. Even if we have given more interviews than anyone else, still things do not become easy for us. A job interview help before an actual interview is actually invaluable for a job interview preparation.

Preparation is not yet the end. The harder part enters when the interviewer in already in front of you. Although you have this purpose of answering the questions tactfully, you are being distracted by the unlikable feeling where you can experience leg shaking and uncomfortable feeling as the interviewer looks at you as you start expressing yourself. As a result, you often forget what to say.
