“To begin with, I haven’t been completely informed as to what this job that I’m considering, entails. I know that it has something to do with programming, but I have no idea to what extent you need my abilities. I don’t even know if I’m qualified for this position. I would love to think that I am, but I certainly don’t want to take advantage of such a generous and kind employer as yourself. It would be a shame if I were to begin working for you only to be fired a few months later because I didn’t meet your standards of excellence.”
