PostSubject: Job question   Thu Sep 01, 2016 10:57 am

So my boss's last day was yesterday - she retired. Some of you saw a while back that I was told I was next in line to be promoted this time last year and then a couple months ago was told I wasn't ready.

So the deadline to apply for her position is tomorrow. It would seem I don't have a chance and I'm not sure I want the headache... so do I apply? My wife thinks I should if for no other reason than sitting through an interview and the small chance I could be chosen for the position.

Thoughts?

Yep, do it anyway. Can't hurt, the worst thing they can do is pick someone else (and I have had that happen to me more than once but one time I let someone else have it because I thought the pay was too low for the headache).

If you would not enjoy the work then I wouldn't. Though I guess you don't enjoy it now so you may as well get more pay while not enjoying it so maybe I would. Razz

If you don't want the headache, then I would not waste the company's time of interviewing you.  If they told you recently that you weren't ready for the position, then I'd take the hint and not put in for it.  That's by 2 cents worth.  With that, and another $5.28, you can get a decent cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Well thanks for the advice folks. I went ahead and applied. At the very least, I'll practice my interview skills while I wait for the job that is for me.
