While it is my goal to do my best to fit into my new job and do my best to overcome the learning curve and become a productive employee, I can't help but wonder how it benefits anyone to be placing people into rolls for which they may not be qualified for. It really makes me wonder just how much thought is put into these bumps.
One thing that has been totally lost in this process, is an effort to demonstrate the human side of things. Not once was I ever consulted or asked what my career goals were. I was simply plopped into a job that someone in the Human Resources office felt was a good fit. Ultimately, there is significant risk here, as 1) I could find myself in a roll that I am not able to do, and 2) the organization may find themselves at risk by having someone do a job for which they are not qualified for. Ultimately, while I am going to make the best of a tough situation, I can't make any promises that I won't take active measure to seek out alternate employment that will better fit my career goals and aspirations. Ultimately, my new employer has already lost someone they didn't want to lose, plus they have gained someone they never necessarily wanted, plus they have the added risk that I may leave before I even complete training, and they will be back to the drawing board.
I tweeted in the following, which was read on air today by Ramona:
On another note, today is pay day, and I see I was not give my final pay cheque for my last pay period with the Crown office, nor was I paid for my first pay period at my new job. Going to have to follow up on this.
