Disputes between two individual who, went to an interview for only one job position at the same corporation. The first person appeared respected and highly academic university, develop years of work experience in the field and, in the mind of the employer, had the potential to make a positive impact on the company's performance. The second person was just starting out in the field and seemed to lack the motivation that was visible in his opponent. "Who was chosen for the job?" he or she might ask.
