Rob Jones is confident he will hold a permanent manager's post but does not know if it will be at Doncaster Rovers.
Jones took over as interim boss at Rovers at the start of September after Paul Dickov was sacked.
Applications for the vacant role ended last Friday, but Jones insisted he was not thinking about potential appointments.
"I try to keep the players progressing as quickly and professionally as possible," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"I'm 35 - I will be a manager, but decisions like that are with the powers that be, not me.
"It's about moving the football club forward and improving performances on the pitch. I think I've done that."
Doncaster have lost their last four games and are currently three places from the bottom of League One.
Defender Jones, however, is hopeful he can help the club move forward until an appointment was made.
"We'd like to win all the games and we'd have liked better performances," he added. "We take it game by game and day by day when you're in this situation.
"It's a situation that I am still thoroughly enjoying."
