What's my Job Title?

Currently, I'm the "Office Manager" for a large, family-run restaurant that employes 170+ people. I am in charge of Design (internal/external, web, print, etc - this is actually what I have my degree in), limited PR (we have an external firm that I liaise with, I do all social media and PR asset management), Bookkeeping/Payroll/Accounts Payable, Limited HR (onboarding new employees, helping to create and maintain training materials, but no hiring/firing/discipline), IT/Tech Support, Project Management, Answering Phones/Reservations, etc etc... oh, and managing the actual office, too (ordering supplies, filing, printing menus, fixing the copier, what-have-you). I need a better job title. [more inside]

Tenure and promotion letters for college faculty

Academics, what is your institution's policy about tenure and promotion letters? Specifically, once the decision to award or deny tenure is made, does a candidate standardly get a letter detailing the committee's reasons? What is the letter like and who reviews it? Looking also for pointers to faculty handbooks where the letter process is described, and links to policies/recommendations from professional associations like AAUP or MLA on this. [more inside]

Should I apply to be the new boss? Yikes!

A new management role has been created at my large nonprofit workplace. Thanks to some restructuring, I (a mid-level person with no management responsibilities) will be reporting to the person in this new position. I am considering applying for it. The new job is directly related to what I do. I have excellent understand of the culture and the organization (very important for this new role), but the new position would be a stretch for me in terms of experience, especially management experience. Should I apply? Also, can you offer advice on how I can approach this opportunity with more confidence and go-for-it-ness? Details within! [more inside]

I'd like to give my year notice, please.

My employer is impressed enough with my work that they want to promote me into a position which would ordinarily make for a great career move. I, however, am planning on leaving in a little over a year to earn a degree in a completely different field, and thus have no interest in the job (for reasons explained after the jump.) How do I diplomatically tell them no without jeopardizing my current position, and how much, if any, of my future plans do I mention to them? [more inside]

New Manager Making Big Changes

So they hired a new manager at work. In the past, this position has Always been someone promoted from within, but this time someone from outside was hired. After only three weeks with the company, the new manager is beginning to institute drastic policy changes. For example, a new schedule for all of us has been proposed, despite the fact that the new manager has never even worked the late shift, the morning shift, the swing shift, or the weekend shift. What is the best way to handle this type of situation? (Without "leave the job" as an option.)
