I am working on A temporary assignment that was scheduled to be for two months
typically gigs like this are three months to six but I took it because I liked the manager and I like the work described to me.

The person training me is leaving and I saw her job posted on indeed
I mentioned to her that I saw a job opening she said it was for her , she was told not to say anything. She said to apply and she also told me she told my manager and her manager I was doing great and the manager agreed.
although I’ve been told by my fellow workers and my manager I’m doing a great job, I have not been asked to apply and my manager has not shown any interest in me for the full time role
I don’t want to discuss it because I’m uncomfortable and if I’m told that I have to apply with other candidates, which my perception means they’re looking for someone better, I’ll be further insulted and just want to leave if I don’t get the full time permanent position.
is there anyone out there that understands my feelings ?
in all my other contract work assignments I’ve been approach and asked to stay on when there was an opening so that’s the world I knew
I typically have a harder shell but this is a very complex, complicated company and I’m only one of the few people that are able to deal with The frustrations and the lack of organization and chaos
mat this company
because I really like the work not sure how to handle this, but I don’t want to be told no right up front and if they hire someone without asking me I can just finish my month from now and leave and move on.
I know things go on behind the scenes and those above me may have their own recommendations but to not have a conversation with me about the job when my manager claims to be transparent, I’m confused there is a lack of trust and I don’t know how to proceed if at all.
They’ve extended me another month so they can find someone else and that’s painful but I like the work again and I’ll do it temporarily but I’m just not feeling warm and fuzzy.

I had a progressive career with 22+ yrs of experience in a Senior Management position at a Global company.
Just before the Covid Pandemic in Jan 2020, I was laid off and could not restart my career right away due to my personal situation during the pandemic. During that time I focused on community service as well as getting more professional certifications. Now when I apply for positions (150+ jobs applied), I hardly get any responses, if any right away rejection letters without even any interviews. I have reviewed my resume with many peers and professionals. Everyone seems to agree that I have quite an impressive resume with impactful experience. So I am beginning to wonder if my gender and age (based on # of years of experience) are causing the filtering of my resume without even getting consideration for interviews. It could even be the break in my career. Any thoughts or advice for me?

So, fast forward a few weeks, I applied for two positions in March--three weeks before posting about having to "play" the game and how does one do that in this current arena?
I finally heard back that I was no longer being considered for one, but I was interviewed for the other last Friday---pulled out all the stops, had a wonderful interview, answered all of the questions in full with examples and left the interview feeling confident.
I received the rejection email today---I admit I am frazzled! Not sure my patience or my heart can take anymore...

A reporter at NPR reached out to Fairygodboss because they're looking for women who have recently joined or rejoined the workforce about what drew them into the job market, what some of the challenges are, and any steps their employers might be taking (or that women wish employers would take) to build a more inclusive workplace.
Anyone have relevant experience + interest in speaking with NPR? Comment or message me and I'll connect you. Thank you!

I work for a non-profit. I am concerned about workplace bullying. I would like feedback about potential toxicity in my workplace. We have two colleagues who are named Bert and Rich. I am on good terms with both of them. They seem to be on the lower end of the social structure at work. Last year someone began to jokingly refer to them as Bert and Ernie. I was taken aback as I was a new hire. Now people are using those names more often. They are now basically referred to as Bert and Ernie in every meeting that I attend that they are not present for. I find this behavior unprofessional. Do you think referring to two colleagues behind their backs as Bert and Ernie would constitute bullying? How concerned should I be about the culture of my workplace overall?
