- Wedding: October 2010
I haven’t been able to focus on work today much less feel like getting anything accomplished. I work in Advancement for a non-profit, special-ed school. Our sister school is on our campus too and I’m close with their advancement Director. Well there’s a parent company above the two schools and we really work for the ‘corporate’ organization but raise funds for our prospective schools.
There’s been a lot of change in the last 2 years. We were told before Christmas that the fundraising efforts and fundraising events will now be placed as a responsibility on each school…hence not us. And that we would focus on the corporation…get the name out, etc. First of all, I’m not a sales person so I’m not thrilled about this. And that they are making a Foundation so now people can give to the Foundation, etc. I also have zero experience in Foundations. There will be a Director for the Foundation which today, I heard will NOT be housed on campus.
Then I was told that they will present this person with the Advancement team and it’s pretty much up to the discretion of this new person if they would like to keep us on or not.
Contracts come out in early June. Fiscal year begins July 1. New person would begin July 1. So I asked my boss if I was going to be given a contract or had to wait to see if this person wants me on their team. I was told I would be given a contract.
I have no idea who or what to believe. I just don’t feel as if my position is safe and that I might get laid off. And while I plan to take the bull by the horns and start to look for something new now, this just couldn’t have come at a worse time.
I need a new car, I’m paying things off, and of course, the wedding.
I already cried this morning to my colleague and no one else knows about this because it hasnt’ been announced yet. She has 7 years and I’m at 3 1/2 and it just stinks.
