Yesterday I received an email inviting me to lunch with my boss's boss, via his secretary.
He is in the second highest position for IT in our company. I believe I know what this is about, but have nothing concrete to back it up. I joined the company recently and put a lot of effort into my job; I even fixed some IT issues that had existed at the company for years. I haven't done anything bad that I know about, so I assume it will be something positive.
My belief is that he just wants to know me better or even offer me a better position; possibly a better fitting one.
Anyway, I accepted the meeting and now I wonder whether I should tell my colleagues or my boss about this. It's a possibility that my boss already knows and wants to see whether I tell him or not.
Should I make a big deal about it?
I know that some people might be jealous after I tell them that I met Mr. X or that they will tell me something about him which I don't want to hear yet. What do you think about this? Is this even something I should be concerned with or should I treat it as normal?
I haven't heard that he invited anyone else from my office so far besides the managers. It's my first time as an employee of a company, so I don't want to mess with my other colleagues in any way that they might see negatively.
