Congrats on your shiny new car!

To celebrate International Joke Day, I’m sharing this joke that mixes a bit of engineering with some job search humor. Credit to: InterestingEngineering.com

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Manager asked the young engineer fresh out of university, “And what starting salary were you looking for?”

The engineer said, “In the neighborhood of $100,000 a year, depending on the benefit’s package.”

The HR Manager said, “Well, what would you say to a package of $200,000 a year, 5 weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental coverage, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years — say, a red Mercedes?”

The engineer sat up straight and said, “Wow!!! Are you joking?”

HR Manager says, “Of course, …but you started it.”
