Dear Experts, I recently started a new job at a company I really respect and enjoy being affiliated with. However, I don't like my current role in the company. I want to stay involved in this company, but my desire is to switch positions. I'm not concerned about money at this point, I simply want to own responsibilities I enjoy carrying out. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#456 Do your current job REALLY well. After 3 mos u can ask 4 additional work you like while STILL doing your job. (@juliaerickson) Q#456 It's likely too early to switch to another job in the company, but if you must, talk with HR about your fit in the role. (@gradversity) Q#456 Like the Company, But Not My Job: http://bit.ly/9SkvxJ (@ravingredhead) Q#456 If there is an open position go for it! If not, you can also volunteer to take on more tasks! Your efforts will be noticed. (@RitaDST) Q#456 I'd follow the chain of command upward until you find someone that can offer you that opportunity. (@beneubanks) Q#456 Study the skills needed for the exact position you want while in your current role. Be open about seeking a move.
