Here’s the deal. So remember that big work thing I talked about a few weeks ago? Long story short, getting promoted to Manager or above in my career field is pretty hard. The jobs are sparse as usually a clinical laboratory candidate is hired before a pathology candidate for upper management positions. Well, FINALLY a pathology management position came up where I work, so I of course jumped at the chance. JUMPED as in literally, LOL. I’ve got 25 years of experience, an MBA in Healthcare management and pride myself in being a positive and motivating person at work. Ask my staff members, I promise I am not just tooting my own horn. I was excited and thrilled at this opportunity. I applied, went through two interviews and had the highest of hopes.
So imagine my heartbreak when this past Friday afternoon I get a generic email from HR notifying me that “they selected someone else.” My heart sank. And I cried. Am I EVER going to get a shot at progressing my career?!? Ugh…
I am looking for a bit of help here, and hope you guys can give me some advise. In my mantra of moving forward I want to put more energy into my blog, and growing it’s content. More cooking, more adventures, and of course always running will be there. BUT…I don’t like the name of my blog anymore, and want YOUR suggestions so that I can grow it not only as a blog, but I can “brand” myself so to speak.
Secondly, I would love to get some management mentoring. I think that is what I am lacking…do you know of any good programs or mentors that would be willing to give this pathology lab supervisor some help? Please, let me know!!
Thanks everyone for your amazing support, the blogging community rocks!
