I am doing my masters in a different domain than what i am working on now . Recently happened to see there is a new opportunity listed in the same organization internal transfer boars which is actually related to my course stream . As i am a crtitical resource for my team ,Should i really inform my manager that i am applying for that role ? or should i let him find out when he actually does

PS: its an internal role change . So he will anyway get to know about this .

  • I wouldn't bother telling him until you give your notice. Give a proper notice (what ever you contract states, the default is usually 2 weeks). Once you have the position secured, give him the proper amount of notice and tell him then. – SaggingRufus Jul 13 '17 at 12:16
  • @SaggingRufus Notice periods typically don't apply / there are company-specific rules regarding that when it's for an internal role change. – Dukeling Jul 13 '17 at 12:28

You need to check the companies policy on internal transfers.

Anywhere I have ever worked has required at least that you notify your manager that your applying for another position. In some companies you have to actually get permission from your current manager, which could force you to look outside your current company for other opportunities.

I would first find out what the policy and then plan your course of action appropriately.
