So remember that position in marketing I mentioned a few weeks back that popped up at work? I spoke to my boss the day after and she said she would have a chat to her boss, though I've only been at the company since June and there are other more qualified candidates so chances would be small.
I sort of resigned myself to the fact that the position came up too early and would continue with my plan to look for a promotion in about 12 months. Deadline was yesterday and my boss called me, said that she'd spoken to her boss as well as marketing and they were all happy for me to apply. So I did
Sent through my CV this morning and heard back that they would be in touch with me early next week to look at the next steps.
Now, I'm hearing on the grapevine that the current candidates aren't quite the right fit, and that I may be well suited to the position despite being relatively new. Oh snap, so excited!
