I have just been given a job I don’t think I should have.
I know people shouldn’t talk that way, it’s not very confident, but I’m pretty sure they’ve got the wrong person. I am in transition to manage a 500-member co-working space and I’ve yet to create a successful personal budget. I have yet to move out. I told the supervisors I’ve never done anything like this before and probably wouldn’t be good at it. I don’t even LIKE business.

They insist that I am perfect.

So I have it and I’m trying to figure out how to (1) discover what they think is so great about me and (2) become good at the things I suck at before they find out. These are the lessons I’m learning as a young, disorganized social scientist in the business world. Will I be found out? Or inevitably become what they’ve asked for?
