Would you like to fly to Pittsburgh, and talk to my bosses for
me??? I have been trying to convince them of those exact things.
Unfortunately, its a no go. Cross-training is the buzzword of the day,
whether the persons being cross-trained have the desire for it or not.
I'm sorry, but if a person is being forced into doing something for
which they have no interst, I can't imagine that they will do the same
type of job that they would do in the area in which they have the
desire. Is that the kind of person I would like to have doing my exam,
hardly. As an administrator, is that the person I would like to have in
a department where a poor exam can lead to a lawsuit, definately not!
