I should probably take this a little more seriously and a little less bemusedly, but I was promoted today at work. I’m now a Vice President of Technology.
No, I don’t get more days or of more money. The only thing that ‘changed’ is I’m officially on the Specialist track and not the Management track (probably because I said outright ‘I would make a terrible manager. I hate it. Don’t make me do this.’). I don’t have the knack, patience or talent for herding people. Lead, sure. I’m good at that. But manage? No. I can’t fathom why people don’t do the right thing.
So there you go.
