Can I just take a minute to complain?
I am not sure who to blame for this, but every time I do a good job on a project at work, I seem to create more work for myself.
Case #1: I help out one of the managers schedule some interviews and now I am in charge of scheduling ALL the interviews for ALL the mangers.
Case #2: I take some data, throw it into a spreadsheet and all of a sudden I am the Excel expert. I think I make or create a new spreadsheet for this or that pet project everyday now.
Case #3: I organize a little holiday party, and now I am the Event Planner?
And I took this job because I thought I would just sit out front playing “pretend” security guard, answering a phone that never rings.
I think my job title should read:
Senior Administrative Assistant/HR assistant/Accounting and Payroll Assistant/Scheduler/Event Planner/General All Around Go To Whenever You Don’t Want To Do That Project Yourself
