On Monday, I found out that my boss and a few other people were "let go". Um, how do you fire my boss? That's just crazy. So after a few days of "they sky is falling, what am I going to do without my fearless leader", I'm starting to adjust. I was told that I will be the last man standing (meaning that my job is secure as I will be the last one to be fired) and that I am valuable to the company. The supervisors in the other departments have noticed my skills and my work ethics and have gone to bat for me to continue to work at my company.
Today a supervisor from another department asked if she could give me some of her work to do. She has to clear it with her boss but that shouldn't be a problem. She said that she knows I'm good at my job and would have no problem with the additional tasks but she really needs help. I doubt this would mean a pay raise but it will look good on my resume and makes me more valuable to the company. Plus makes me feel better.
Just the fact that she asked me makes me feel good about myself. I have to wait until next week for an answer. In the meantime, how do I NOT get excited about this?
Get excited because just by being asked, you've been spotted as valuable and capable. No one can take that away! If you actually get to do the extra stuff so much the better. Congrats, and sorry about your boss. Work shake ups are unsettling, say the least.

Congrats for the opportunity! That is exciting. Sad for your boss that got canned though.
