I got a promotion in my volunteer job

December 6th, 2016 at 09:56 pm

It's ironic, isn't it? What I could really use is a paycheck, but I'm happy to have been "promoted" from a writer to an editor at the health website where I've been volunteering for just a few weeks now.

They are a little overwhelmed with work and are having trouble keeping up with editing/reviewing the work of the volunteer writers, so she asked me if I'd be interested in editing others work while still occasionally doing my own writing.

I was actually thinking of suggesting this to them down the road as I noticed when taking a peek at other writers' work that improvements could be made. Smile

Actually, I have a bunch of suggestions for various improvements, but I don't want to flood them with ideas being so new to the team. One step at a time. My secret hope is that I'll prove so helpful to them that they'll offer me a paid position. One can dream, anyway...

    Good idea to make yourself irreplaceable so they will (hopefully) offer you pay.
