Job hunting

“How is the job hunting going Alex?”

She shrugged her shoulders in a nonchalant manner and didn’t say anything in reply.

“You are so well educated, a graduate of a top ranked university. How come you cannot find a job which suits your qualifications?”

Alex stared at her father in a resentful manner. She was not a little girl anymore and didn’t like to be taken to task for the way she lived her life, even though she still lived at home with her parents.

” Dad you know I have emailed my CV to so many of my acquaintances and I am waiting to hear back from them”

” Well I think it’s an anomaly, you not getting a job. All your friends have managed to get good ones” Dad was in a jesting mood.

At that moment, her mom walked in and Alex turned to her for some support.

“Mom you know I am right in not accepting just any job. I was at the top of my class. I can only take a position that is in accordance with my qualifications”

Mom gave a cynical smile and said ” Well honey, you should wait till Bill Gates steps down and then you can take up his job”

Alex stomped her feet in frustration and walked out.
