Hmmm… I guess I was wrong when I talked about the “air of inevitability” regarding the position of webmaster for the University.
The VP of IT e-mailed me back this morning and said she’s going to “pursue a different path.”
Say what? This really threw me for a loop, especially since she didn’t give any further explanation.
I don’t know what’s going on here. It’s strange to say the least, as I thought the job had been offered to me if I wanted it.
Was it something I said? Was it something I failed to say? Did I ask too much? I don’t think so: My requests were not framed as demands. They were reasonable and open to negotiation.
I’m a bit disappointed, not to mention surprised, not to mention curious. And confused.
