A few years ago, a major Multinational company was looking for a new Marketing Director.


After much advertising and many application, three candidates entered the final selection process.


A mathematician, a statistician and a solicitor.


The first to be invited in for the final interview was the mathematician and the Managing Director asked him a simple question: What is 2+2. The mathematician was surprised, thought about it for a bit, wondered if it might be a trick question and then simply answered 4.


The Managing Director looked at the Board, shook his head and thanked him for coming, but he wasn’t the candidate they were looking for.


The statistician was the next in and and the Managing Director asked him too the simple question: What is 2+2. He paused, thought about it for a bit and then replied that statistically it was a number between 3 and 5. The Managing Director smiled and Board were quite impressed. The candidate was thanked and ushered out.


The last candidate, the solicitor was then invited in to the interview and the Managing Director asked him too the simple question: What is 2+2. Without batting an eyelid he replied: “What do you want it to be”. And was promptly hired on the spot.


You might call it creative accounting – sometimes things don’t always add up.
