Howdy, so a few months ago I posted regarding a job I was interviewing for that was a 'personality' kind of job, not a 'resume' kind of job. The good news! I got that job! The bad news: It's not what I thought.
The job is a little...interesting, essentially I'm 'technically' in charge of managing a website, which is great. However I'm being tasked with making sales calls for a different company the fellah owns, with the risk of "If we can't get a sale we're all out of jobs' . Essentially I'm calling various people with a very tennuous lead, and the pressure is to on to convince these peoples to buy this service we're offering. I hate this so much I'm actively avoiding it. Like hardcore avoiding it. Anxiety, walking around putting it off, etc. I.hate.doing.this.
But because I was 'promoted' (the company is essentially two people), and I'm now being paid full time hours (I now have two full time jobs), I feel obligated. I had previously volunteered to make a bunch of 'verify phone' style calls, which was a little easier and a little less stressful.
Anyway, I want to e-mail my boss and say "I'll happily take a reduction in hours if I don't have to do this extra, not-related-to-website-thing I really like" but worry that by saying that I will therefore be the scape goat for when the company can't make a sale and no one has jobs.
So...do I man up and make sales calls despite my last sales job being in 2004 working retail at Saples, or what?
