So I joined a company about 5 months ago to position A.
It is a big company (1000+ employees).
The company has posted a new position ("position B"), in a different department, that is more senior than my current position.
I have some experience that is relevant to position B and I think it may fit me better than the current position I fill.
I wonder if and how it is possible to apply to position B.
- Suggesting such a thing will raise questions about my fit to the current role. My manager may don't like it and may wish to find a different person to fill my position, regardless if I move to position B.
- I feel some frustration in position A and think position B may be better for me for the long run and in terms of career path
Following some questions from comments:
- Yes, people are fired from the company and it is not hard to fire people.
- Inquiring about position B with HR or the relevant manager will obviously expose me.
Is this a catch-22 with no real solution?
