the ride is over

Well the roller coaster ride has finished now to pick up the pieces. Things were getting a bit hectic last week, changing every hour so I didn't do any updates on where I was going or not going with my job since it was just going to change. The final fall out was the position my boss had created for me was approved and I qualified by the chin or my chinny chin chin. I don't have a masters degree so we had to write up a very elaborate resume that showed I had qualifying experience. The final outcome was I had to give up reinstatement rights as an Administrative Assistant II. See there was this other job that came up last week that I could have transferred to but I didn't want to if I was able to qualify for the new job. But when you are laid off and they call you and say we have a job. If you say no, that's it your off the reinstatement list. I and hoped that if the new job didn't work out I would be able to go back to being an Admin II. No such luck and on top of that I am now in a position that is exempt. This is good and bad. The good is I can't be bumped, the bad is it's an at will position so if my boss decided to cut it for budget reasons I'm out with no job I could bounce to.

During all this I was training my replacement from the Port. She is actually a nice lady and I don't hold anything against her for everything that happened. She's pretty happy I'm still around so she can ask me questions as things come up.

On Monday September 21st I started my new position as Management Intern. Yeah Intern is an odd title but the City does not see it as a temporary position. It's seen as a management training position. Oh God you know what this means don't you? I'm being trained to go into management. My new direct supervisor is great. She's all about making a path to where I want to be in 5 years and making sure I get everything I need to get there. It's a bit scary to say the least and I kind of feel I have been throw in the deep end with the sharks. It's sink or swim time.
