My boss quit

Wait, there's more.

HER boss quit a few weeks ago. I don't think I mentioned that before. But with both of them going, that makes a bigger impact.

They will be gone in early and mid-March respectively. It will take a while to fill the positions and train the new people. So I am getting a whole lot of new work to do, I'm sure.

In some scenarios this would be good, but my boss works very closely with the database and I, frankly, do not have those skills or background. Much of what she does I simply do not know how to do. And at this late point in my career, I really don't want to learn!

But I will do what I have to do. The one bright spot in this is that our new VP seems to be a very good manager and I trust him to be fair and understanding.

One of the departing bosses told me that she mentioned to him that if I was taking on more responsibility, I deserved more compensation. I am underpaid as it is. But we'll see. I'm not holding my breath on that one.

    well, you never know what could come of it.

    i felt the same way about having to learn new software with this new p/t job of mine, but i find the Filemaker is very easy to work with and Quark is..well, Quark.

    Is it an Access dbase, or something else?

    No, it's a database specifically for fundraising. I used a different one in my former job, but this one is more difficult, I've just never gotten the hang of it, and now that my brain is moving into its senior phase.... ugh.
