Job Interview

Life is about tough decisions
Decisions that are parred squarely between the head and the heart

Interviewed a candidate for an opening today
She was sweet, had an infectious smile, tanned, intelligent and well qualified. Her asking salary was however a little more than what we budgetted for. Surprisingly in all these years of recruiting staff, I actually had chemistry with a candidate.
She got cheeky and suggested a compromise which did indeed sound like a good deal to me. Her smile was so beautiful it really made me want to make her a permanent landscape in my office.
It was between her and another young man.

.... I chose the guy.... on the grounds of qualifications and experience... but my heart ached.
Was tempted to take down her contact details but decided that it would not be a good idea and handed her file to my assistant.

If only we had met somewhere else and the smile was under different circumstances......
