The Reference Desk
I recently accepted a position as librarian-manager in a local law firm library. When I was hired, I was told that I would report to the executive manager. However, a couple of days after I began working, the senior administrative assistant, Carol, sought me out and told me that I should actually be reporting to her. When I asked the executive manager to clarify, he responded that he didn't know why Carol would say that. I'm worried that he won't set all this straight and there will be a clash in the future. Do you have any suggestions for what I should do?
