I think a lot of jobs are faking it until making it or learning as you go, especially first jobs. I think you could def do it @Copa! Good luck this morning.
At my company, as an OH employee, it’s hard to move up unless others leave and the way to move up is start managing people. I was ready. The previous marketing director wouldn’t promote me because I didn’t have “people manager” experience. How do you expect me to get that??? I was already basically sourcing the work coming to our office so I was doing a lot of what the managers do. The director didn’t know me and wasn’t great. She didn’t last long. Anyway, a few people stuck up for me and I was finally promoted. I’m thriving. In fact, one of the people who helped me out was in town this week helping me on a major pursuit. She’s the director now. The other woman who helped me out is now an EVP and our Growth Officer for the region.
Office politics are the worst.
