What Should I Do?
Okay, not exactly an organizing question. But it definitely relates because what happens will have a big impact on my life.
Should I resign from my job or wait until it is possibly eliminated? I posted here about my difficulties with my boss. I have talked to the CEO & pres. twice & to her once. They told me they would talk to her after my last session with them.
She told me last night that she had posted an ad for someone else for the dept. I don't think she would have told me except she said she didn't want me seeing the resumes coming in & wondering what was up. She did not tell me not to worry, that we were getting help & this wouldn't affect me. She told me that she didn't know how it would work out. She said that they might make one time-consuming area of my job a full-time position. If that were the case, I would be working more with the new person than with my current boss.
I knew that there was a risk talking to upper management. I was afraid that if I did, I would be pushed out eventually. Sadly, this is the same thing they did to the previous person in my position. I should have checked into that more closely, but they told me that she had stepped into the position to help them at a time when they needed it but wasn't really suited for the job.
This might work out & the new person might be great to work for/with. I know I'm probably kidding myself about that, though.
My first instinct is to resign. I guess I'm just not sure what to think right now. It is obvious that there are some problems there. I'm trying now to think with my head & not my emotions, as I'm frustrated, angry, sad, etc.
I'm most worried about to put on future job applications. If I resign after such a short time, that might be a red flag. However, if I remain until they hire someone else & they decide not to transfer me to a different position, I guess I will essentially be fired. Then, I will have to answer "yes" to the "have you ever been fired" question. I should have left this job right after I started. I guess I've been trying to hang on feeling that it would look better on my resume if I stayed for a while.
