How long have you been in your job? Four months.
Who is the smartest person you work with? Jason. He's a sophomore in
college and a brilliant developer.
Who is the craziest? My boss, Raj. First of all, he's an entrepreneur in

several key placements out of it that should directly drive sales, so it
was a nice entrance to make.
Sneak us a good piece of gossip from your office Chances are, whatever
it is, it's probably about me. I promote parties at various clubs from
