791. Job application


Jonathan applied for a job at the weather place: the Meteorological Office. There were over two hundred applicants. Goodness! What chance did Jonathan have? So many of the applicants had climatic skills equal to Jonathan’s.

The interviews were held. The applicants were whittled down to ten. Jonathan’s name was among them.

Further interviews were scheduled. Two applicants were named. Jonathan’s name was one of the two. Yes! Yes!

And in the end, guess who got the job? Guess who! Guess who! Jonathan! It was Jonathan!

When push came to shove both candidates were identical in knowledge and experience. Both had breezy personalities. Both were industrious. But Jonathan had the edge. He had listed ballroom dancing as one of his interests. It was something the other candidate lacked.

Jonathan literally waltzed in.

    Jonathan went on to become a most popular weather presenter on TV and soon, as a minor celebrity, was asked to take part in ‘Dancing With the Stars’. Jonathan elevated meteorology to dizzying heights as he not only waltzed, but also tangoed, fox-trotted, jived and hip-hopped his way to mirror ball fame. Jonathan quickly gave up weather presenting and opened a dance studio. The Meteorological Office declined to hire anyone else who listed ballroom dancing as an interest saying ‘They waltz in, they waltz out…..’.
