I have a meeting with my new VP today. I really dislike these things! I am quiet and shy, just don't talk much, and it's hard to do these 1-on-1 things. It's like a job interview all over again and I've been here 16 years!
I spoke to a co-worker and who has had his meeting and he said it was OK... not easy but OK. He said he was put on the spot and drilled about things a few times. He did say something very nice that I appreciate. When asked, out of the three of us who work on the IP Telephony systems, who was the best he said hands down it was me. I'll be sure to return the favor and one of his strong point is that he handles all the Executives and their Assistants. Does a lot of hand-holding and individual work with them. I REALLY appreciate that because I don't want to do it.
Wish me luck.
