The company I am currently interning with does not seem to hire entry-level candidates directly into corporate roles.
However, there is a company that services my company (e.g. provides IT support). This service company does seem to accept more entry-level employees and is owned by the same major parent firm.
I have read a ton of articles about how I should go about asking my managers, who I am friendly with, for a potential full-time offer. But I am in a peculiar situation, as I am interested in working for the services company, but do not know how to ask my current managers for a potential recommendation as it might look like I am not interested in my current team. I am afraid of asking people from the services company I know either as word may get back to my team and they might think I went around their backs.
Is there something I can do or some way I can phrase my explanation to my managers to still retain their positive opinions of me while receiving some kind of recommendation?
