Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

I am not looking for a job. I have a job. I am a blogger and kindergarten student.


Looking for Job in Silicon Valley

But if I were looking for a job here in Silicon Valley where I live, I know what kind of perks I want.

1.  dry cleaning on campus

2. nails done

3. breakfast, lunch and dinner

4. access to a free helicopter

5. pocket money for on-demand errand services

6. paid trips to Lake Tahoe and stay at the Ritz

7. laundry service

8. roof-top yoga sessions

9. gym memberships

10. massages

11. flexible work schedule

12. unlimited vacation as long as I get my work done

13. food, food, food

14. drinks, drinks, drinks

and how about a partridge in a pear tree, too.

Indeed many, most of these perks are offered to job hunters in Silicon Valley now. I wonder what they will be giving away when I am looking for a job. Free flights to space. A life in the vacuum tube loop. Someone to do my taxes, maybe even pay my taxes for me!

Silicon Valley is a great place to work if you have the skills that companies need.

Mommy said that one of their employees was fired. He was happy. Not only did he get a big check to STOP working, he can totally get a bigger check from the new company plus some or all of these perks.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
