Let’s say a manager decided to hire someone for an accountant position. But, after the hire, the manager persists in only assigning supply chain analyst responsibilities to this accountant, which the accountant isn’t trained for and have almost nothing to do with the accounting field. This goes on for months…and even that manager’s manager expects nothing but deliverables that only a supply chain analyst would deliver.
Every time this accountant proposes deliverables related to accounting, those ideas are immediately rejected. This accountant would be in a tricky situation, because she would need to describe her achievements in this position to prospective employers. What would be the best way to handle this situation?
