Is the ‘New Guy’ My Replacement?


Dear Experts,

A new guy just got hired in my company, doing the same job as me, but he’s been given a little bit more responsibility and a more senior title. I’ve been with the company about 6 months and thought I was doing an okay job, but now I wonder if I’m going to get let go and he’s my replacement? What should I do?
