Another consulting company contacted me last last week about a position with their firm. I know nothing about the position, and hardly anything about the firm. I'm open to discussing it, though. It's interesting, NONE of these job opportunities have come from posting my resume online for 2-3 days. It's all from reputation/Linked In. I think it's driving my boss insane, and I don't know how he knows...EXCEPT!!!
Older Woman hangs back after meetings with the Account Managers, and they have a meeting of their own. My boss said to ALL of them "KansasSunflower is bored", making it THEIR fault that they didn't get the right kinds of jobs to keep me happy. How ridiculous is that? Older Woman asked me...who did I tell? Did I tell Bipolar Girl? I thought no....and then I really thought about it, and yes...I think I did. Would she sell me out? She would sell her soul to make that man happy with her and like her. I have no idea why. My guess is that it went something like this, because he's done it to me before about other people..."Bipolar Girl, do you know if KansasSunflower is happy here?", and she probably went "blah blah blah she said she's bored, but she's okay", because I DID tell her I was bored there. I've got to watch what I say around her. Now I wonder if my boss knows about the Big-4 firm, too? I ought to tell HIM that SHE is using company resources to staff on the side. It hasn't made her any money yet, but it might eventually. She'd better not be squealing on me - I have too much dirt on her.
Older Woman wants her own "team", and my boss told her that once she got 2 new clients, she could hire people and start a team. She has 3 new clients, and is ready for her speech with him. She has an outline prepared and everything. Except. I know him too well - I can tell he does NOT like her, she actually annoys him immensely, and I would be SHOCKED if he let her have her own team to do with what she wanted when he doesn't believe in her methods. What do I believe? They both are so different, and both of them have things I learn from - good and bad. My boss - I learn to sell. I learn how to paint a picture rosy to a candidate, how to make them WANT that position more than anything. Too much actually, to where they're frickin calling me all the time. From her, I've learned to get the details. Thoroughness, but she goes overboard. So does he - he's unrealistic and pushy. Different styles.
If she isn't allowed to start her own team, she is going to start interviewing elsewhere, and she said by the end of the week, he will be completely aware of what she is doing. I don't understand the logic of that. Isn't the idea to hold on to your job until you find another one? To keep getting paid while you look for work someplace else? I would say, that means keep it on the down-low (as if I'm one to talk), but...who knows?
I wish this anxiety would go away...it seems to be all work related. And I don't feel like I'll ever get a job anywhere else and be stuck where I am forever, no matter how many people call/email me. Don't get me wrong, I *know* there are much worse places to recruit, but still....I'm ready to move on to bigger, brighter, better things.
