This is one heckuva hectic week!
So I received a call back from the job I had applied for way back when. They had been pushed back because of AOP planning, so...I wasn't hearing much from the new prospective job...and surprise surprise I wasn't hearing much from the new potential promotion from my current position.
So as soon as I receive my call this week, I tell my manager to let her know that I have a 3 hour interview (I hope I get bathroom breaks). I email my boss's manager to ask him if it is okay to use him as a reference. He emails back saying of course, but that he would also: "Surely like to find a career path growth for you within Marcom Ops, if that's possible and of interest"
While I appreciate that he wants to keep me on the team, why wasn't more urgency put into creating a promotion for me in the past few weeks? Why now when I am facing an interview? Well because the potential of losing me becomes that much more of a reality of course. But don't they realize that if I was offered this new position I would take it over just a "possibility of career growth within Marcom Ops?".
I guess I'm frustrated because if I don't get this job I feel like trying to please me is going to die down again. And I'll have to fight twice as hard if I want to get them to push the promotion.
