Hi,

I know what you mean about trying to find a job and not being able to go interviews. My suggestion would be to ask for phone interview. There are some jobs that if your resume looks really good they will do a phone interview.

I tried to get HR to get me out of it. They couldn't. It isn't a big company so I can't move far within the company.
I don't mind doing more...it is just that even HR said they wouldn't want to do that book.

Also Dagny, if you're intent on finding a new job, think of it this way, you have never missed a day?? Take one day, schedule it off and either go apply to as many different places as you can or schedule as many interviews for places you have already applied to on this day. In the meantime, Mogal's right. A lot of times, employers give new and different responsibilities to employees in order to see what kind of a team player they can be. They then use this info in considering employees for promotion and/or raises.
Good Luck!!!

Dedication weighs ounces, regret weighs tons!

I'm not sure what "write tiny" means. But it sounds like your boss trusts you and wants to give you more responsibility. If you can handle these extra projects then maybe, just maybe, you can apply for another position in your company. Ask the assistant or your boss for more details on how to complete the assignment, it might not be as hard as you think.
But if the boss is hard to work for, talk to HR and see if they can help you move to another position in your company. I wouldn't use customers as a reference. The more you do the more you learn. Hang in there! emoticon

I feel like I worked so hard to find this job, and now I don't want it anymore. I've worked there over a year. The boss has a temper. He wants me to do a new project thing which is NOT my job, not what I was hired for, it is actually his assistants job but the assistant has too much to do. I do try to help others in my free time, and once they set me up with little easy things I can finish their work.
But this one project, I can't write tiny and it is going to get me yelled at and snapped at daily for the rest of my life. I can't live like that. I am basically being "promoted" in a way, but I said I don't want to be promoted but they still give me it.
So I am redoing my resume. I don't feel like I learned alot at work, to put on there but I am putting on what comes to mind. I also have never missed a day at work. I've run to doctors apps in the morning and let them know, I have never been late from them more than 30 minutes.
The customers seem to really like me too.
I don't know what references to use for future jobs. My dad says to use customers...how do I do that? They probably don't know my name, they know me as the receptionist and I don't want to mention this at work...like oh and could I use you as a reference for my next job, I am ____ name?
If I ever get an interview with another company...how am I to go? I have no lunch hour...
Thanks for any advice!!
I just don't want to quit because I am afraid of not finding another job, yet I don't see how I will ever find another job while there all day...
