So I was busy yesterday. Reaching the end of a job interview, I asked the young Safety Advisor fresh out of university, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"
The Safety Advisor said, "In the neighbourhood of $100,000 a year, depending on the benefit's package."
I said, "Well, what would you say to a package of $200,000 a year, 5 weeks holiday, 14 paid stats, full medical and dental insurance, company matching Kiwisaver fund to 10% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a red Mondeo?"
The Safety Advisor sat up straight and said, "Wow!!! Are you joking?"
I said, "Of course, .....but you started it."
