Special Projects at Work

Have You Ever Been Selected For a Special Project?

There's nothing like having your skills recognized — whether it's winning a round of Words With Friends, or being selected for a project at work. An archaeologist friend of mine called me positively glowing last week after she was offered the opportunity to do research in another state for the next six months. The thrilling bit for her? She was told she was hand picked from a stack of qualified researchers because she was the standout. Go her, right?! Have you ever had the honor of knowing you were the best woman for the job?

We don't really have many "special projects" at my current job and since I'm only there part-time, I don't get to head many of them up. At my old job, I was a project manager after only being there a few months because my boss said I was very capable and responsible. I liked doing it, but it was kind of a pain to make sure all my teammates were doing their tests on time.

I'm coordinating and writing a big paper right now, and when I showed my boss the first draft, she was so impressed and said "I knew you were the right person for this job!"

I have to say, yes :) It's been nearly a year since I started working as a "beta tester" for an Oncology project at work. I was chosen out of the team due to my "attention-to-detail" and it seems like so far, so good. They're happy with my work. It really does motivate you on the job :)
