Heard from my boss someone questioned my qualifications for my new position (1st day today)
Yeah, that kinda sucked.
I heard from my boss today someone was questioning my qualifications to be at my new position. Which is weird, because the only requirement for the position is a degree, which I have and had to present, which they have on file.
Basically they questioned if my degree was acceptable. But again, the degree doesn’t matter to the company. All it matters is that I actually have one, and that I can do my job well and efficiently, which I can.
I got promoted and transferred to a new office and the 1st day was today. The boss is the same, because they got a promotion and decided to bring me to the new team as their only “old employee”.
The nature of my work is different and I’m dealing with higher ups all day.
I don’t know who it was that raised the question, because I know no one from the new team, and certainly no one had access to my personal information. They are mostly higher ups, with very few exceptions (who would not dare to question my boss).
That means that it was either someone from my previous 2 teams, or someone from those teams gossiped to the higher ups and made them raise the question to my new boss (who is also their new boss).
I work directly with said boss, who is the only one that needs to be satisfied with my work. The new position just increased our interactions and my responsibilities.
It just made me upset, because I work hard and always give my all, and I didn’t want to tell anyone in my real life, so here we go.
I needed to vent, thank you for reading.
