I currently work in the higher education space and recently got an adjunct faculty position (through my current position, for a semester). This teaching position runs from August to December. I have also earned an advanced degree while in my current position and, honestly, I'm starting to feel like I'm overqualified for this position.
Recently, I saw a job posting within the same organization that fits my desired career path and I'm torn between applying for the job or staying.
While my current position will not try to stop me if I decide to leave, I'm trying to find a scenario where I'm pursuing my career goals while at the same not step on toes on my way out, and complete my teaching obligations till the end of the current Fall semester.
So, my questions are:
At what point do I bring this up with my current supervisor?
I want to be as discreet as possible, but, also put forward my best references, which includes my current supervisor. How many I go about this?
These are the questions I have at the moment.
I'll be happy to provide more background if I need to.
The current job I hold is a full-time position, but, I also took the teaching position in a temporary capacity. The teaching will end in December, but the full time position is not ending when the teaching ends. I started the full-time position in 2017, and teaching this past August.
The job I'll looking for has just been posted two days ago and it will be opened until they find someone. I have not applied to it yet.
Yes, I have other references that I can reach out to.
I did not sign any notice period forcing me to stay at my current position.
