impression your input would have any effect on my decision for the
outcome of this project!"
HR Manager to job candidate "I see you've had no computer training.
Although that qualifies you for upper management, it means you're
under-qualified for our entry level positions."
Quote from telephone inquiry "We're only hiring one summer intern this
