    I work as a phlebotomist...the lab is a portion of the Pathology dept. I've been there 15 months. Before I was even out of my probationary period, I had taken over inventory management, except I hadn't been granted final ordering privileges-ya know, budget impact and all. For the last six months I've been the lab representative for the Inpatient Loyalty Committee. I've received cross training in the Pathology Office and Histology (morgue) for about the last six months. Recently, I applied for the job running the path office. There were three other applicants, and a panel of four interviewers. My boss tried desperately to talk me out of it. At the end of the process, I was the number one pick across the board- and my boss undermined the entire process- hired an outsider to keep me in my current position.

    I'm FURIOUS.

    So. My current thought is this: if she thinks I'm that damned important right where I'm at, it's time for her to start treating me as such. I love my job and my company, and I fully intend on staying there and moving up. But clearly my boss doesn't want to allow that.
    So what now?

    Hi Mad,
    I can see why you are Mad, and determined! It seems you have to recognize and be with your sense of not being supported, and perhaps voice this to a friend or your boss.
    Good Luck. People are so messed up!;)

    Hi Mad,
    Don't bottle it up. Communicate. Put it in writing and cc HR. Start a paper trail.
    Also, you can ask for a formal meeting with your boss and explain your goals and intentions.
    Sometimes bosses are narcissistic pieces of crap that align everything to make their lives and work load easiest. Don't be surprised if they lie to your face and throw you under the bus. That's why you have to cover your butt with a paper trail and always look out for your best interest.
    Good luck.
