Tyson's New Job
Tyson started a new job at Vivint Solar yesterday. He's working full-time on their customer accounts team. This is not the original team he was offered a job for. This particular team is only open to people who have worked at Vivint before and have received additional training. Because Tyson has done computer support at BYU and for the LDS Church, Vivint moved him to the advanced team and on his second day training (today) he was already accepting calls, in Spanish, from customers. To say they were impressed would be an understatement. There are other teams he can train for which will increase his responsibility and pay. This job also has benefits! We're so lucky that we took a leap of HUGE faith and did not register Tyson for classes this semester. He'll be returning to school in the fall for sure but he may take a class or two over the summer to reduce his fall/winter load. If all goes according to plan Tyson will finish his undergraduate classes in April 2015 and then I will graduate with my master's degree in August 2015. It's kind of weird, when I think of Tyson's graduation it sounds so close but when I think of mine it sounds so far away when it'll only be four extra months. Not exactly a lifetime.
