The Applicant

  "Looks are so deceptive that people should be done up like food packages with the ingredients clearly labeled."  ~Helen Hudson
He scanned the resume and made mental note of qualities claimed.

Hard-worker, self-motivated, a high sense of initiative...

And then he looked her in the eyes, "Are you willing to work as volunteer for six months?"

She hesitated. "No, Sir. I just want to earn."

He dismissed her right away.
Note: My older brother, who has 12 years of HRM (Human Resource Management) professional practice, shared this incident about one of the female applicants he interviewed last week for the position of "administrative assistant". Despite her impressive background, my brother rejected the applicant.
