At my company, a typical MBA degree qualifies you to apply for a job running the Xerox machine.

Computer programmers and electical engineers, however ....... Current hiring standards are: Must be able to fog mirror held under nose. Ability to walk OR chew gum a bonus. Ability to speak English optional. Oh, and able to pee into a cup. Starting salaries are around $40,000+ ---TRULY OBSCENE.

At a recent division meeting, the president said that the industry requirement is something like 100,000 new hires per year, and only 30,000 graduates per year. Now, ask me if I am happy that I decided to become a programmer!
