Interviewer: Good Morning, Dave. How are you doing?
Kid: Dave’s doing well, I think. Yes, he told me he is happy today.
Interviewer: (Surprised, pleasantly)And he sent you to attend the interview?
Interviewer: Then where is he?
Kid: He went to the washroom. And dad’s name I saw on the TV screen outside. And I am next in command. Hello!
Interviewer: Hello! I guess Dave will have to wait. I’m John. What is your name, young chap?
Kid: My name is Peter. And I’m 6 years old.
John: Would you like to apply for this job, Peter?
Peter: Yes! What do we make?
John: We don’t make anything!
Peter: Not even computers?
John: Nope. But we are related to computers. We provide IT solutions.
Peter: Like at the back of my maths textbook?
John: Haha! Umm…I simply cannot make a comparison. We help other companies do their work.
Peter: Then what do they do?
John: They provide the front end. (Sweating profusely) Like mobile phones, laptops, cars, buildings.
Peter: Now we are talking. What’s our front end?
John: (teeth clattering) We manage the databases, test softwares, provide updates…
Peter: No making stuff? Not even candy?
John: Nope. Not yet. But tell me, Peter, what would you do with the money that you would earn?
Peter: Break the piggy bank. Buy lots of chocolate. Go to DisneyLand!
John: That’s great. Would you also like to work with DisneyLand? We work with them on some things.
Peter: DisneyLand’s not for work. I’ll play in DisneyLand.
John: That’s true. Tell me, what would you like to do here?
Peter: Are there comic books here? And empty paper? I like to draw.
John: Would you like to draw on a computer? We have many people here who do that.
Peter: Yes? Yes!
Dave enters, folder in hand, tie at its best, a bead of sweat on his forehead.
John: The kid knows his stuff! You’re hired!
Peter: Thanks! Dad, we’re done here! Let’s go.
And that’s how you ace an interview. We might never know what happened with Dave’s interview later that day.
