Whoa! Job Promotion

Wow! My manager just came over for me to have a talk w/ her. We walked away to have some privacy and she told me that she wants to promote me!

Same job really just a higher level and probably more $$$. Holy crap! I can't believe it b/c it was totally out of the blue. Every other job I've had to ask to be promoted.

Just excited is all.

"Watch your cornhole."

No, really, I'd be a little paranoid for a while, but that's just me.

Re: Whoa! Job Promotion

Thanks for the props. It's not certian yet. She's new to the company but has been impressing a lot of people. I need to write some things up to help her justify her case to promote me. No biggie, as this is standard procedure.

To answer some questions:

No I'm not rethinking grad school/ job shift. This is just another step in the right direction and hopefully the extra scratch will come in handy while in school.

No she's not hot.

I don't need to be paranoid. They know I'm going to school, and we are hiring more people. I've been doing a lot of phone screenings for new candidates. We also have a lot of work coming.

Whether I make it to Grattan or not will depend on school more than anything.

Excellent!

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Whoa! Job Promotion

She's probably just putting you in a positon of accountability so you can take the fall for something she did.

I do all my own stunts.
