Secrets In Recommendations
Instead, my boss chose someone else, and offered me what he considered an even better promotion, except that the responsibilities of that job did not appeal to me at all. So I turned it down. I was only vaguely aware that this “better” position existed; at no time, either when I interviewed for the job I wanted, or before or after this period, did my boss even ask me if I had any interest in this “better” position. I have accepted that it was his decision to choose someone else, and I still would have turned down the “better” job even if he had handled it diplomatically, but I am very, very hurt by his poor communication. I still have to work with him, although I won’t be seeing him as often now. I don’t want to be childish about this, I don’t want to carry a grudge, but I don’t like or trust this man particularly anymore. How do I respond when I see him, when he asks me (jauntily, as is his style) how I am doing?
