Ugh that sucks soooooo much!!!!!!


I had a slightly similar situation but ever so slightly different…I worked at a huge publishing companby but was anxious to shift out of my department into an adjacent one.  A position opened up and I went for it…and so did the sweetest most fun cube mate ive ever had. She was so so nice, always left sweet notes for me and really awesome.  and in all sincerety, she was more qualified for the job and when she got it, I was bummed for me but happy for her.


….only she had the position under a year, when she got pregnant and left the job to be a housewife and Stay-At-Home Mom. Again, very happy for her, but if you wanted to have a kid and leave the corporate world, why did you steal that job from me!?!?! not cool 🙁


In the end I let it go, I had already left the company by the time she left her position. meh 🙁

Sounds to me like you are doing your job so well they want to keep you exactly where you are.  My mom had that same problem.  The solution?  Apply for jobs with other companies and leave.  After she accepted a position for more money at another company and after working there for a few months, the old company called and begged her to take her old job.  She requested more money and benefits, they couldn’t offer her any more so she politely declined.

I experienced something very similar to this years ago.  Unfortunately, I was so angry I gave my notice and quit, so I’m not the greatest to ask!  I’m sorry that happened to you, and I hope they make that new position for you ASAP
