Over the last few months, I had been searching online to find a new job. My current job at the time, I had been with them for over seven years so I had been out of the job market for a very long time.

Based upon what I was currently making at the time, my search for a new job would have to provide me the option of either making more money or at least match my current salary I was making at the time.

As the commercial comes to a conclusion, one of the three men featured in the commercial turns to us who have viewed the commercial asking the question of what’s in your wallet.
