I need advice from you lovely ladies. I mentioned last week about my possible promotion. As I said before, the only one who can stand in my way is my boss. Because I've been with the company less than 1 year, I cannot just randomly apply for a position. However, my boss can submit an exception and allow me to apply for it. If she doesnt, I cannot apply for this position. She seemed open to the idea and asked to talk about it when she got back from vacation.
On Monday afternoon, I approached her casually asking if she'd had a chance to read my email regarding my interest in the position and she said, "I've been really busy and haven't had a chance to think about it yet. I want to talk to you later after I've had a chance to think about it so we can talk intelligently. My first inkling is that you've not been with the company long enough. However, I know that position is a good fit for you and am trying to consider that as well. We'll talk later"
So my question for you is... when is later? She got back from vacae Monday... today is Wednesday... Im worried about waiting until next week to discuss it because a) I want to jump on this opportunity before it becomes a public posting and b) once the new year hits, we're going to be crazy busy here at work.
Ideas on when and how I should approach her again?
