I was 24 years old and a senior at New York University (NYU). At the time, I was planning to get a law and business degree and wasn't even job hunting I walked into the student center to fetch a Cot instead found a roomful of students. Clearly, I had accidentally walked into a job fair (招聘会). As I tried to walk across the hall, a man stopped me, saying" Hi.my name is Donny Mckenthan, Would you like to work for IBM?""I replied, "No, than. I'm Just going to get a Coke.”
I ended up having a wonderful conversation with him about the company but I told him there was no way he could persuade me. I went out for dinner that night with some friends. When I mentioned this story, they couldn't believe I was foolish enough to refuse the interview with this amazing company! I went home that night, dug out his card from the rubbish and called him back.
After a series of successful interviews, an IBM manager called me to give me an offer. When I asked what the salary (薪水) was, he said something like 18. I thought $18, 000 a year was low. So I started to bargain. He was shocked and explained that the starting salary for all trainees was set in stone.
The next day, I received the offer letter. As it turns out, I misunderstood the offer-I would earn $1, 800 a month, not $18, 000 a year. That was a great salary back then, so of course, I took the job. A few months later the manager asked me to be placed in sales because I was the only trainee who had tried to bargain over a starting salary! That comedy of mistake ended up being a wonderful22- year career(职业) at IBM.
