Over the last few months, he has been applying for a full-time job with a number of companies in North America (i.e. Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Google, IBM, Cisco, etc.). Several companies flew him out to the west coast for interviews. In mid-December, he received several job offers and just before Christmas, he accepted the job offer from Google. So, at the beginning of May 2016, Richard will be moving to Silicon Valley in California to start his new job with Google.
Hence, the 1st of 5 kids will be leaving the nest in a few months. Cynthia (my wife, his mom) and I would like to say great job at University and congratulation on the job with Google.
On an interesting side note, Richard won’t be lonely in Silicon Valley (at least in the summer). Tyler (son #2) has gotten an internship with Facebook in Silicon Valley. So, they plan on sharing an apartment during the summer. Tyler is currently in 3rd year engineering at the University of Western Ontario in the Mechatronic Systems Engineering program.
