I work in HR for a small, very profitable company. I work in a 2 person HR dept, so it’s just me and my boss, whom I love! She’s such an awesome person, and we get along so great and I still totally respect her as my manager. This is a really great company work for and they genuinely care about their employees. I really feel like I hit the jackpot landing this job! So I guess the conundrum I’ve run into today is a really good one!
My boss told me today that BOTH our VP of Marketing and our VP of International Sales want me in their departments! They are both in need of someone and both want me to fill their spot. I’m working on setting up meetings with both of them separately to discuss the job and what the responsibilities would be (as well as salary) before making any kind of decision, but I’m kinda sad. I know for a fact that there’s no real career in HR at this company. Sure I could work here for years to come in this same role, but until my boss leaves (and she has made it clear that she doesn’t plan to go anywhere) there would be really no growth potential. I would be sad to leave my current boss 🙁 Of course we’d still be working together, but it just wouldn’t be the same! The other 2 are pretty cool cats too though 🙂 I mean, of course I’m going to explore both of these options – they both sound pretty exciting and will DEFINITELY pay more, but I don’t want to just make a move for the money. Honestly I’m super overwhelmed, and flattered, and excited, and a little scared, and super happy and a tad bit sad…so many emotions!!
