Even Better!

So plans have changed a little! We're still moving to Boston, but instead of going for an internship, we're going for a real job!! Jason got the call yesterday that Cambridge Associates would like to hire him starting January! (He was able to give the internship to another colleague) We're legitimately employed! With benefits, a salary, and 3-weeks vacation (4 next year), like a real grown-up job :) We're so excited that we'll be able to stay in Boston longer than a semester. We'll get to be real Bostonians. Come visit and we'll have tea parties!
Jason's Blurb: Here's the "About Us" section from their website: "Cambridge Associates is a privately held independent consulting firm that provides consulting and investment oversight services to more than 800 clients worldwide. We strive to help global institutional investors and private clients meet or exceed their investment objectives by offering proactive, unbiased advice grounded in intensive and independent research.

At Cambridge Associates, we don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-all” approach to investing. Our philosophy focuses on identifying the individual objectives of each client and applying time-tested investment best practices to achieve successful results.

Widely recognized as a leading investment consulting firm to sophisticated investors, we place a special emphasis on avoiding conflicts of interest and maintaining complete independence from money management firms. " So Cambridge focuses mostly on non-profit organizations, endowment funds, pension funds, museums, private investors, etc. I believe their large focus is the endowments, pension funds, and non-profit organizations however. Anywhoo, Thought we should let all know our news. Thanks for the prayers everyone! It really does work out in the end.

So happy for you! Boston really is a neat city. So much history and great fun. New England is a beautiful place and I think you will love it. Just a short drive to NYC too!
