Help: I am concerned I’m not going to pass my three month probation period?
I am so perturbed, I’m very down on myself at the moment. My probation period ends 7/26 and I felt like I was doing fine until yesterday when my boss approached me about how I did a presentation with students. She said I was okay but I need to stand up and show authority in front of the classroom. Last time I sat in the back because the coordinator was presenting for me but this time I ran it on the computer in the front by myself (she joined virtually). But she wanted me to stand up when she came in the class after, I sat while she and the other coordinator talked to get feedback from students. I hate getting corrections, this happened at my previous job often and I really hoped it would not take place again. I’ve been getting good feedback here, last week she said she’d be taking a step back to pretty much test me as this is my last month on probation. Considering the position is meant for two people, the second person hired alongside me quit after two weeks to take care of family. I feel like she should expect that I need more guidance, I kinda feel like I’ve been handed to the wolves. Her other feedback was that she would expect I take more initiative & not doubt myself/going to her for reassurance. Today, we did a conference call with corporate and twice she made me feel like I wasn’t doing my job. One to ask that I follow up with education about a grad, another time to let corporate know that I would be updating the chart to add more grads (there were a few missing). I really try to be punctual but things slip.
