Hello Career Bee’s –
I need your advice for the situation I am in. First, let me start by saying I work for a non-profit and we are always in the overworked underpaid category.
Here’s the situation. I’m going into my third year working at my job, that I do love 🙂 Every year I have been here we have always had a masters level intern who is placed with us for an entire year. I supervise all of the undergrad students at my job, about 4 – 5 students but never supervised the master’s students.
This year, my co-worker had an accident and broke her leg. She started working from home in July and has not come back to work physically since then. She still works full-time but because of her accident she didn’t really recruit like she has in the past for a master’s student intern. Therefore, the deadline passed and here we are.
I was already helping out at the office with things my co-worker was unable to do and that’s fine. Lately, I have felt like I wasn’t performing up to what I usually do. Then I realized my boss has been giving me all the projects that our intern usually does…which would be fine if I didn’t already have a job to do. I was given a project last week that I was so confused about (my boss left me some notes on my desk and asked for it to be completed when she returned) it then dawned on me that I had never worked on this project so I had no clue what I was doing.
I don’t know if it’s worth even bringing it up to my boss. Could you bee’s give me some advice? I don’t want to get stuck working twice as much workload for the same pay.
