What words of advice can you give me?

My superviser is going to retire in six months. Since he anounced it people have been saying "I hear you will be takeing over when he leaves". This has comes from people that I work directly with and other people in the building. I just say that is what I keep hearin.

I work in a large hospital and the position would involve superviseing around eightteen people.

Let me know what you have to say.

    You might want to learn how to spell first, then speak to your director directly. I am sure that he would give you an adequate amount of time to make the decision. I dont think a supervisor would just throw you in to a supervising position. Do you want the position? You have to think of the benefits of it and what you want to do.

    Don't count your chickens before they hatch. If you want the job, keep quiet. Don't get cocky. The "higher ups" may be watching you to determine how you handle the announcement before making a decision about the replacement. If you seem over eager or egotistic, they may hire outside the co. Or if you act like you don't want it, they may assume that you indeed do not want the job and hire someone else. I like your current response of "that's what I keep hearing" Good luck!!

    I would bring it up with the person who actually makes that decision. Let them know that these rumors are floating around and you want to know more. If you are interested in the position, then express that interest. If you are not, then be sure to let that person know you are not interested. Either way, best to get it straight before hard feelings start to develop...
