The Promotion Interview

Two interns, Janice and Kevin, sat nervously across from the CEO for their big promotion interview. The CEO, known for his strange questions, cleared his throat.

“Alright,” he boomed, “imagine you’re on a sinking ship. There’s a life raft, but only room for one.” He paused, a glint in his eye. “Who do you throw overboard?”

Janice, eager to impress, immediately blurted out, “The intern from marketing! They haven’t even finished their coffee break yet!”

Kevin, however, remained silent. After a long, pregnant pause, he leaned forward and whispered, “Sir, with all due respect, wouldn’t it be easier to just push you overboard? You’re the one with the life raft budget.”

The CEO stared at Kevin, then burst into laughter. “Alright, alright,” he chuckled, wiping a tear, “you’re hired! Just stay away from the life rafts.”
