Check out my stories to hear about my current situation 😅 Basically, my current job is being discontinued for an upgraded version with the added responsibility of another area that brings it from Program Manager to Operations Manager (+$7k pay increase). I think given the choice, both my current area + the other area (that I worked really closely with earlier this year and who loved me!) would choose to have me as their OM because I already know them and the organization, but I’m not as sure I’m going to get this position as I was about my current position... and being told that I have to apply to be considered and that they will find something else for me “in 1 of 3 areas” if I don’t get this was very unexpected and difficult to hear 😞 I realize that strategically they gotta do what they gotta do, but I still felt clobbered by it. I’m taking the night to wallow and then the new position is being posted tomorrow so I need to be strong and move forward with a plan to try for this since I do think I’m qualified and would be the best fit for it, but I also need to be prepared (logistically and emotionally) if I don’t get it. Either way, this has been a wakeup call that even if you bust your ass, nothing is promised and you could be replaced in basically an instant. This has only proven to me even more that I need a good “f*ck it” fund!!!
