Telephonic Job Interview
The person who interviewed me said that they do a lot of financial management for nursing homes and doctors. They were looking for someone who had a knowledge of medical terminology. The man explained that he would "love" to have a nurse because "nurses are smarter than your average secretary."
The salary: $12 an hour.
I told him I couldn't work for so little.
He sounded as if this was such a great opportunity for me to learn accounting and that any money paid for learning just made the deal sweeter.
No thank you. I told him that nurses make more money that what he was offering, so his chances of getting a nurse to work for him on that salary were almost nil.
I'm glad I was able to do the interview on the phone. I didn't have to get dressed up and waste gas traveling. Is my current job the best I will ever find?
