I say this every time I blog about work, but I'm going to say it again: I know I'm not supposed to blog about work and I'm going to do it anyway. Just to keep you updated, you know. (The things I do for you, dear readers!)
My boss left the organization this week, and, while the powers that be decide what they want to do about replacing her and/or restructuring my department, I'm taking over many of her duties.
What does this mean? It means that I will have much more responsibility. It means that, although I will be answering to the Directorate of the organization, I will have much more autonomy.
It also means that I will have an incredible opportunity to prove myself as a development officer. If I get through the next few months, get us as close as possible to our fundraising targets, and get along with everyone on the way, I will officially be a development rockstar.
It's a bit daunting, but very exciting.
Wish me luck!
