I learned about a position in my company in our customer service department today at work I think my wife could be a good fit for. I work in the engineering department (I'm a new hire by the way).
My wife has prior customer service experience and although she lacks the technical background of the products my company designs and manufactures, I believe she could fit into the position and do well at the job.
Is it inappropriate to ask the supervisor of that department about the position and recommend my wife? As I mentioned before, I'm brand new at the company and learned about the opening today while talking with one of our IT guys and he mentioned it after I said my wife has experience in customer support.
