Good News

Juan is starting a new job on Monday.  About two months ago one of Juan's former co-workers from Nokia let him know about a job opening at Ericsson where she is currently working that she thought Juan would be a great fit for.  Juan was ready for a job change, but there were few chances to move up in Coca Cola (without moving to Atlanta).  Ericsson is a Swedish communications company and benefits are generally much better with European companies than American companies.  We felt this was a great opportunity and blessing.  He applied, he interviewed, a job offer was made and he accepted.  We are super excited about this opportunity and the commute will be just about the same to the one he is making now.  Ericsson's North American headquarters are in Plano so there should be lots of opportunities to move up within the company and maybe even move to a job site that is only 15 minutes away from our home.
