My horoscopes have all said things about salary increases, being recognized for my hard work, given more responsibility, promotions, etc this week. Now if only my employer would finish interviewing all candidates for what would be a promotion with more responsibility and better pay... that I've been working on all year! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but out of all of the people I know that applied, I'm the most qualified and reliable. There are 2 men that I consider my biggest competition- one has scheduling conflicts that the application specifically said would not be considered and the other one is "on paper" qualified but when he's had a bad day, the entire building knows it and he's not the greatest at receiving criticism. I just wish they'd freaking announce it already so I can stop stressing and figure out what to do next. If I don't get it, I'm going to see if I can have a bigger role in the administrative side.. and maybe take some classes.
