And now for a big announcement

John has a job.

He was actually offered this job almost a week ago, but he didn't get around to posting about it until last night, and I didn't want to steal his thunder. He'll be working for Ernst & Young as a Client Support Specialist. I'm not sure what it is he'll be doing exactly, but he gets to work with the UK and U.S. branches (divisions?) of Yahoo!, as well as Ernst & Young India. It'll be great experience. They are a huge company so there is tons of opportunity, and they are very invested in their employees. The benefits are awesome. It's a better fit for us than we ever hoped to find.

And, since this is my blog and I get to brag, I just want to say that John totally nailed the interview. He researched the company and practiced interviewing, and he looked really hot. . .uh, I mean, professional in his new suit. I was and am really proud of him.

So, now the hunt is on for an apartment. And furniture. And possibly a part-time job for me, but only if I can find something perfect. Perfect meaning flexible, interesting, reasonably well-paid, and either from home or max of 15 hours a week. Even from home I don't want to work more than 20. We'll see if I can find a teaching position somewhere in the fall, perhaps.

Hooray! I am so happy for you guys. This is the best announcement I've heard all month. We plan to visit in October...hopefully you're all settled in whereever you end up!

YAY!!! I am so excited for you guys! What a wonderful opportunity. When does he start?

If you want to live in Lehi that place across the street from me is still for rent... :)

I highly recommend IKEA for furniture...

The only problem I see is that this job is ALL THE WAY OVER THERE!

Very cool for John! I'm glad he found something that sounds very interesting and large companies are always good for training and opportunities. Also, as a side note, AEGON is a client of E&Y.

As I work for a competitor of E&Y, I can say (while it's not as good as Deloitte:):)), it is a great place to be. I really like working for a big company and have had great experiences. I think this is terrific! Congrats!

в наше непростое время хочется иметь какую-нибудь уверенность, не так ли? Вот и надумала приобрести какую-нибудь квартиру в Швейцарии, но куда где ни позвонишь - везде попадаешь в "ахенства", где с молдавским акцентом предлахают свои услуги. Но, как я понимаю, они и не знают где сия страна и находится. Так как заодно предлагают недвижимость неподалеку: в ОАЭ :) вопрос: вообще реально ли купить недвижимость в швейцарии без ахентств? единственное, что удалось найти - это швейцарский сайт по продаже [url=http://www.swissinvest.su]недвижимости в швейцарии[/url]
