I just started a new job last Monday at a startup. My role is Customer Success, but I am currently in school for marketing analytics. I took this job to change industries and with the hopes I could get a chance to move departments. The last two companies I worked for were branch environments with little growth opportunity.
Anyways, I want to let them know I have this analytics skills I am working on in school that I would like to apply at work. Is it better for me to tell them sooner or later. How much later if so? Should I reach out the marketing dept directly or go through my boss? I disclosed I was in school during my interview so they know already. I think this would be a refresher to them. I don't want to be in customer success long term nor do I want to grow within customer success and become a manager there. My goal is to apply my analytics knowledge so what do you think I should do? thanks!
