I started a new junior level job in the IT industry. I have a few years of experience related to the job.
In my resume, I mentioned that I had skills in the field of B,C,D in my job. In the interview, I added that I had worked on E briefly. I would need to learn a lot more to do E related work on the job. Moreover, E was optional in the job requirement and no interview questions were based on E. Now, my manager gave me work related to D and told me to learn a new skill E1 in the field of E, so that I can quickly start working on an app that is based on E.
The problem - My manager recently emailed me to ask me if I had skill E3 in the field E. He was puzzled when I told him the facts. He also said that he thinks that I am fairly skilled at E, because my hiring manager told him so. I don't know how this confusion happened. Now, I am not sure that they will let me continue learning and working on E. But, I don't know if they will actually do that. How do approach my manager about this and convince him to let me continue working on E ?
