I do this well and have received awards, congratulatory emails, and excellent reviews. However it has never been my goal to only do subsidy paperwork. I have wanted to be a property manager almost ever since I started in this field. With the first company I worked for I was the "heir apparent" and had been assured of the managership when my then boss retired. Unfortunately we were sold before that happened so this was not realized.
He did leave under cloudy circumstances early into our time with our new company. I was encouraged by my regional manager to apply for the position and I did. I was told that I was not ready for this by the CEO of our management company. I was devastated at the time but could see truth in what he said. We had been with our new owners less than a year. The things that we do in this company and the way they are done are very different. I had also not had a lot of time to show my new company my strengths and what i could bring to the table. So although I could understand what was said, I was devastated. It was probably a good couple of months before I shook it off and emotionally moved on with my life.
Six years rolled by and now the position is open again. Being a
So luckily I had a plan B when I applied for the position. I will spend the next couple of years getting a lot of additional schooling on my companies dime. Education is never wasted and although I could in most cases just challenge the classes and obtain the management certification, I will take the classes. Then, when KC and Lissa are a couple years older, I will apply for a managership in a different company. I have friends in other management company's who have said I can send them my resume at any time.
Most importantly, I have not let this bother me emotionally. I gave myself a full 24 hours to wallow in my unhappiness. And wallow I did! LOL But I have a lot of great and wonderful things in my life and I can't let one no overshadow all of that. I also know i really am a very capable person in the field I work in and that although this company does not see that outside of the realm of compliance work, I know it to be true. With my first company my roles included staff management, budgets, capital needs assessments and more. So I am moving forward into 2018 with a plan, with energy and with hope!
