Bill Gates Hires Two Keralites

Clip_325Bill Gates organized an interview to recruit a new Chairman for Microsoft Europe.

5000 candidates assembled in a large room.

One of them is Jose from Kerala

Bill Gates: Thank you for coming. Those who do not know JAVA may leave.

2000 people leave the room.

Jose says to himself, ‘I do not know JAVA, but I have nothing to lose if I stay. I’ll give it a try!’

Bill Gates:  Candidates who never had experience of managing more than 100 people may leave.

2000 people leave the room.  Jose says to himself ‘I never managed anybody by myself, but I have nothing to lose if I stay. What can happen to me ?’ So he stays.

Bill Gates: Candidates who do not have management diplomas may leave.

500 people leave the room.

Jose says to himself, ‘I left school at 15, but what have I got to lose ?’ So he stays in the room.

Lastly, Bill Gates asked the candidates who do not speak Serbo-Croat to leave.

498 people leave the room.

Jose says to himself, ‘I do not speak one word of Serbo-Croat but what do I have to lose ?’

So he stays and finds himself with one other candidate. Everyone else has gone.

Bill  Gates joined them and said ‘Apparently you are the only two candidates who speak Serbo-Croat, so I’d now like to hear you have a conversation together in that language.’

Calmly, Jose turns to the other candidate and asks “Naatil Evideya?”

(IN MALAYALAM-WHERE YOU ARE FROM)
The other candidate answers: ‘Trichur’

Both of them got selected.
