My son Paul

He has just been offered 90,000 if he joins a security company doing their web sites. He would have to go to Tel Aviv a few times which he doesn't want to do.

Also got 5 interviews with other companies,all wanting him, One being the Royal Academy of Arts.

I can't believe what companies are willing to pay him.He does web design on the graphics and art side of it from what i understand.

He's clearly very talented Realspeed!
Computer art and graphics isn't an easy field to stand out in!
It sounds like he has the pick of the bunch there... I wouldn't want to fly to Tel Aviv on a regular basis either. That RAA one is the one I'd want of course

Must be nice to be that "wanted"
Makes my salary look positively meagre

The bad thing is some Middle East areas have a habit of seizing foreigners and accusing them of being spies for political gain. Not worth it imho.

I have been to Dubai, Tel Aviv, Libya, Turkey and a few others in that neck of the woods. I suppose many people have. Never worried me.

Wonderful news, Realspeed, you must be very proud. I think I would be inclined to give Tel Aviv a miss though!
