Well I got the go ahead from the hiring manager that if I apply and am chosen for the position, he wouldn’t require that I move. Very thankful for that. So I proceeded to get the paperwork filled out. There is an on-line part where you tell them who you are and how much money you want as well as send a copy of your resume. Then there is a separate piece that requires you to fill out an Internal Job Application, which has to be signed by your manager. I am not crazy about getting her signature but I don’t feel it will be a problem. I mean nothing is changing because of this, it is just me throwing my hat into the ring. I am sure that the dollar amount I entered is probably super low. I did a quick Google search, saw what the mid point was and slightly inflated my number.
Once I hear back from my manager and get the form signed, I need to send it to HR. That will officially put me in the running. I know that there are several internal applicants and I am not sure who or how much experience they have.
I don’t want to get in over my head, so I will be asking questions when interview time rolls around. It would suck to find out that I got a job that I can’t preform. There is minimal travel involved and I am certain that for training they would probably have me travel. We shall see what the future holds. If it’s meant to be then it will. If not well good news I still have my job.
