The Engineer said, “In the neighborhood of $125,000 (N24,875,000) a year, depending on the benefits package.”
The interviewer said, “Well, what would you say to a package of five-week’s vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50 percent of salary, and a company car leased every two years, say, a red Corvette?”
