Q: What do you enjoy the most about your job?

A: My salary of course!

Q: How has the economic recession affected your job?

A: There are lots of lay off and there is no job security.

Q: What inspired you to become an engineer?

A: To me it’s not what inspired me it is who inspired me to become an engineer. My dad

and MacGyver inspired me because my dad is an engineer and I look to up to him and I

saw the practicality of engineering in MacGyver’s show.

Q: What obstacles have you faced with your career?

A: I can’t think of one. Well, Mondays are an obstacle. I don’t like waking up on

Mondays and going to work. There’d just something about Monday’s that I don’t like.

It’s probably because it’s after a weekend and I want to sleep in.

Q: How does your current job affect your life?

A: I buy stuff with my salary.

Q: How does your relationship with your co-workers affect your job?

A: Well, I have this stalker at work. It gets very distracting! First, he is not very attractive

and has kids my age. Second, I continuously have to reject him. I even made my best

friend my fake boyfriend. During my vacation in Cancun I even bought an engagement

ring, a cheap one of course. Unfortunately, I get along with all my co-workers and have

to deal with them teasing me about this old stalker guy. But then again they also help me

avoid him. Does that answer your question?
