No, I haven’t gotten a new job. My title is still Client Service Executive.
A few weeks ago, there was the monthly conference call with the larger Client Service team and the big dog asked for volunteers to help streamline all of the various client service teams’ toll free numbers. Now, the toll free number for my team comes to me anyway, so it seemed like a natural fit for a project I could sink my teeth into.
So I volunteered.
December became January, but today was the actual phone call about it. I’ll spare you the boring details, but the key takeaway is that I am in charge of a project. I own this. I STEPPED UP to own this, without really understanding what it was, but why not, someone had to (and I hear nobody else volunteered.)
I’ve worked with Project Managers before so this isn’t entirely new ground. Plus, ages ago I was an Office Manager and worked with phone vendors. So I have that going for me. Which is nice.
It’s a great opportunity to show off to management. I’m very excited for this opportunity.
And a good resume builder. I’m not nervous at all. I have no concerns. Not that I have it all figured out, but I’m very confident I can get this done.
