I'm working at a university as a software developer and I've developed some systems in free time (because of stuff that annoyed me). The boss of the faculty of computer science and me came into contact when I showed him this software and he wanted to have it for his own faculty (I studied something else).
I later got into the university programming department in a very specialized unit that is not under the control of the boss directly. I work fine and I believe my colleagues and "lower level bosses" haven't done anything to point attention to me in a bad way.
But yesterday, the highest boss called me on my phone (his assistant even explicitly asked me for my number first, as nobody there had it), he had a job for me (parsing lots of PDFs with more or less uncertain data, and getting them into Excel-Format (I parsed the PDFs with about 8-10 simple regexes)) that "no one else he knew could do so easily" (because he knows I did something kind of related in the previous software I demonstrated him). The job is not explicitly easy, but every software developer should be able to do that. He also called me while he was on his holidays (where he was still working though), thus, it seemed to be important to him.
I accepted this, but I am not sure what this means. Is this a bad sign? Or a good one? Or none at all?
I'm a bit confused about this, since it was very unexpected to me and even my bosses, who said that he should use "his own" programmers for that. I'm also still a student, not a full member, and as such, I am not in a position of much power or decision making. What to do now?
