Rising star

Today I helped Mattias to jump-start his career. I had seen an ad from Microsoft, which said that Microsoft needed testers for some of their yet-to-be-released products. They were looking for people between between the ages of eight and 70 to try out new voice-recognition features.
I took Mattias there and they set him to work for about an hour. When he was done, he collected his salary of 100 Swedish crowns (around 15 USD), and, as a Christmas bonus, a box of chocolate pralines. He was extremely satisfied with his first ever day of work, and is now looking forward to his future career.

    That’s awesome! He’s learning some good life lessons :-)

    Btw, I heard Microsoft is looking for beta testers for their new Flight game.

    I dont think they get paid, but if he’s interested in ever becoming a game tester its something that he can include in his resume.

    My younger brother loves playing flight simulation games an is dying to get into the beta :-)

    That’s so great! I’m glad he had a good time. :)

    Also, Antonia I have a question that might seem silly. When you say Swedish crowns, are those the same as krona?
