Disappointment

Saturday, September 27, 2014

I applied for a management position within my department a couple of months ago. I learned this week that I did not get it. While I was qualified, the other two candidates were as well. Perhaps even more so as my management experience dates 20 years ago.

So...I wasn't terribly surprised that I didn't get it. But I was disappointed. Not because I didn't get it....but because when I asked if I would be considered for another management position that will open up in a couple of weeks, there was no warm/fuzzy feedback. Rather, I was told that if an internal person with recent management experience applied, that would weigh in more for the consideration. Despite the fact that I have over 15 years of transplant nursing experience.

Needless to say....with that kind of feedback, I don't feel like putting myself through the whole "Hiring For Excellence" experience again. It is grueling and your every move is watched during the hiring process. I do plan to talk to my immediate supervisor about some leadership activities/roles that I could assume. So...we'll see.

Meanwhile....I will be 100% supportive of the new manager (who will be my direct supervisor), continue to be a team player, and provide optimal care to my patients who count on me.

No pity here....just stating that while I wasn't surprised, I was disappointed. But strong enough to carry on. Thanks for listening!
