Job Application

- 16 December 2013, 12:12

The work qualification test

Murphy applied for an engineering position 
at an Irish firm based in Dublin. 
An American applied for the same job and both 
applicants having the same qualifications were 
asked to take a test by the Department manager. 

Upon completion of the test both men only missed 
one of the questions. 

The manager went to Murphy and said.

“Thank you for your interest, but we’ve decided 
to give the American the job”

“And why would you be doing that? 
We both got nine questions correct. 
This being Ireland and me being Irish I should 
get the job!”

“We have made our decisions not on the correct 
answers, but on the question you missed.”

“And just how would one incorrect answer be better 
than the other?”

“Simple, the American put down on question #5, 

“I don’t know.”, 

You put down 

“Neither do I.”
