    we took quite sometime to regain our composure before continuing with the interview.

    OK you think this old joke is real or not?

    I went once to an interview.

    The HR manager was in a short black leather mini.

    She sat on the table and the chair offered to me was a low one.

    I failed the interview because I felt I was talking to a beautiful pair of legs.

    Maybe you should do it after she gave you the job?

    Better still put it in writing if she doesn't believe you.

    My friend who is 40 ( degree holder) just went for one interview with an employment agent. When asked her salary expectation, she said above $2k. The employment agent said: :"Come on times are bad plus your age ..." meaning that she should lower her salary expectation just because she is this age.

    Are times that bad, didn't the govt say it is good. Fresh grads all getting higher pay.
