I don't like my job and haven't for some time now; I think I have mentioned that here before. But I feel mistreated and not appreciated at all here and it is starting to really get to me. I have a college degree like most everyone else here but am still second to the lowest position in the office after a year and three months. I apply to other positions in my department but have not been interviewed once for another, higher paying post. Yesterday I was TOLD that I have been put on a committee to screen and hire a new person to a position above me, one that I should be considered for but now can't even apply for since I was put on the committee. It is so maddening!
I am thinking that if I am not qualifed to be promoted then I am not qualified to help hire someone else. I want to refuse to be on the committee and inform them that I am actively looking for another position elsewhere. I am doing that but nothing has turned up (I live in a smaller town) and I do need a job to pay my bills.
A sidenote here... I do everything that is asked of me promptly and efficiently. I am cooperative and helpful when I can be.
So, the question is: Do I say something and stand up for myself or do I try to be thankful that I have a job and keep quiet?
