Please, Have I Offended Him? by Pricyy: 6:44am On Jun 08
Good morning everyone.
I don't know if this is the right section to post this, but I'll appreciate your opinion.
I'm currently running my industrial training in an organization. so yesterday, my boss and his colleague were talking about employing an office assistant to run errands in the office, I suggested that he employs me to fill the position ( I run most of the errands anyway), but he declined stating that my internship is a paid one( which he didn't mention at the beginning, he said it's at the end of my internship he'll pay me.I've been there for two months now) I felt bad afterwards.
I regret asking him to employ me to fill that position...

Nothing to regret there. Mata fact, he should be happy that you are willing to stay after your internship

Write him a letter of apology and show a sense of remorse.
You are not supposed to dabble into their discussion

I didn't dabble into the discussion though, I asked him 30 minutes later.
His colleague wasn't there when I asked.

Dont further elaborate the matter. Just be looking and doing your job. Good luck.

You have every right to express yourself.


And since he said he'll pay you at the end of your internship, then you shouldn't be greedy after all....


Do your work and do your best, of after your internship they refused to retain you, then it means there are better opportunities out there waiting to embrace you.

Please you did nothing wrong. You expressed your desire to do a job that was open in the office, so what? I admire your courage.

Please Next time approach the matter in a formal way.. that's if you did not do it like that....

Approaches matters a lot when dealing with issues.... The best approach would have been meeting him privately one on one...then u tell him why u were the best for that role... suggesting that they hire u infront of the colleague seems like you were eavesdropping on their conversation that does not involve u... even when it was said infront of you... it was not a general meeting where u can say your mind... just saying this incase of next time if you find yourself in such situation again.. (I guess this should be part of your industrial training grin)

Just let it slide.. I will suggest that you carry on with your work like nothing happened .. u did not kill anyone... they should even be proud of you that you were willing to work.. that you have the 'can do' attitude every boss is looking for

You are on internship, meaning that you will be going soon, he needs someone that will be there all the time

So just leave him to decide whatever he wishes
If after the internship, you wish to remain there, then you can come back for employment

I don't see anyways youve offended him by indicating interest in something you want for yourself.

It's high time people started braving up and stopped being fearful at their place of work.

Know your right as an employee.
You have the right to question and request for anything provided it's not against and outside the companys policies.

No offence here.

I don't understand, why are you feeling bad?

You probably see your employer as a demigod.

It won't help your career in the long run.

I suspect something fishy, why didn't they mention your internship is paid? Anything that isn't written in a document is not an agreement.

I suggest you move on with your duties and not expect anything, please also try to get real Internships that will allow you learn a skill instead of running errands.

Beware of Nigerian styled Internships that want to turn you into office house girl, you're an Intern meant to learn not an office assistant.

I think you need mentors in your life. Why would you even ask for an office assistant job in the first place.
