I'm disapointed with my company once more.
There will be a public contest to offer services to my country government, and my company asked me to bring them all my computer courses certifications and diplomas. They'll use them on the contest, to prove that they have qualified personnel working for them, and if they have the best people, they'll win the contest (and a lot of money, of course).
I see one bad thing here: my company (or any other company) never sponsored my courses and certifications. That's something I've built on my own expenses. I'm not even earn money for those competences, as somebody would expect. I fell exploited when they try to win a public contest using the certifications and diplomas that I've gained on my own, using just my efforts, time and money.
Is that fair? What I could do to make them understand that I don't like this, without risking (a lot) loosing my job?
I would love to read my fellow monks advices on this matter, or even some other posts about this same subject. I beg my fellows to forgive me for not reading any other posts about this. I couldn't find good words to unleash any wisdom from the Super Search shrine at this time.
May the gods bless you all for your advice.
UPDATE: I was fired last night, short after I posted this node. Thank you all very much for discussing and expressing you oppinions, guess they could be more usefull at my next job, when I have a next job. :-)
I'm sure this node is not the cause of my dismission, as my employer fired all the folks working on my project. They tell us (all) that this is an administrative decision, they can't go on with the project anymore. I was expecting this for about a year, now, and this sounds like an article from yesterday's newspaper... better luck next time. :-)
