SHASHIDHAR (DATA ANALYST/ STUDENT) 25 November 2011
The young accounting graduate, fresh out of uni and knowing everything, applied his first job. The prospective employer asked him what starting salary he was looking for. "" oh, around $100.000 a year, depending on the benefits package." " Well, how does this sound ? Five weeks annual leave,22.5% superannuation, paid expenses to overseas conferences every year, home telephone reimbursed and a company car replaced every 20,000 kilometers, say a mercedes benz convertiable." The graduate sat up straight and tried not to look excited. "WOW. Are you kidding?" " Yeah. But you started it."
