    Am I the Kiss of Death or What?

    My boss' boss resigned today. She'll be gone by the end of June. And as soon as she's gone the deathwatch will begin on MY boss. Most of us don't give her long once her boss is gone. It's a long story, but it leads me to one question ... am I like the black cat walking across an organization's path? My last nonprofit basically went under. Now the shake-ups here not even three months after my arrival ... one has to wonder.

    Most of my coworkers are thinking I am safe from any "cleaning house" type moves that could be made under new supervision. With some relatively high ranking executives on my side, I know I’ve got enough people in my corner to lobby for me. But after losing my job TWICE last year, I can’t help but worry.

      Jeebus FINY that sucks. I hope it works out for you. How are the projects going?

      P.S. I lost my cellphone recently. Can you send me a txt or leave a voicemail so I can get your number again?

      Yikes, that is a lot of bad luck, but at the same time the nature of the non-profit world in general. I don't think you're bad luck. Never have, never will :-).
