@UKbee:  YAY! Congratulations! 🙂 Just breeeeeeathe, it’s a good thing 🙂 Actually, it’s a fantastic thing! I’m sure they didn’t make a mistake. 

You can do this. Jump up and down with excitement, you’re allowed! Then go out for a fancy dinner, drink some champagne and then, after the news has sunk in, sit down and give yourself a pep talk. Maybe write down a plan of how you’re going to deal with your new responsibilities? It might help you calm down and see it’s doable. But first and foremost be happy, you deserve it! 🙂

Its a huge thing when you’re suddenly picked out of many others to do a specific thing, and perfectly reasonable to suddenly wonder if you really can do it. But hey, they picked YOU, so they must have faith in your abilities, and so should you!


enjoy it and congrats!

Congratulations!! That’s very exciting!! And yes, you CAN do it, even if you have to “fake it until you make it”, as they say.

I was just having this talk with my SO last night, about my new job where my manager keeps referring to me as a professional in the field I got my degree in. I have worked in related fields since I graduated, but I just keep thinking, “is she referring to me??”. It’s definitely scary, and sometimes I feel like a fraud, like I can’t give an answer to questions I should know, but you know what? It’s normal, and you’ll learn (quickly!). And just be honest, like you mentioned, that it’s a steep learning curve and you don’t know everything yet.

Good luck to you, it’s going to be awesome for your career, and I’m sure you’ll be great!
