This question already has an answer here:
I have a concern.
I am a Software Developer, lets say that I don't consider myself a Junior Developer, but I am not an intermediate either, lets say I am on the transition from Junior to Mid level programmer.
My boss just gone to another place, and now I am the developer in charge of what he did.
Sometimes the database guys ask me to do updates and I really don't know what they are talking about, the director of my department doesn't seems to be as if he will calling a new senior programmer, I feel stuck, I feel frustrated and I feel that I don't fit in here.
How should I talk to the director about it?
I how do I explain my situation that I don't feel able to do what they are requesting to me. I am not going to ask for more money to do that work because is not a question about money, it is about the knowledge that I don't have.
My boss has a another building where there is a senior developer, everytime I ask him for something, if I ask more than 3 things, he gets mad, which frustrates me more and more.
I don't believe this is a duplicate of Totally underqualified for position, don't know what to do as I've read that and it's a very different issue to mine.
