How Do I Handle Applying for an Internal Position?

0

Dear Experts,

My boss told me last week our CFO/COO mentioned she is thinking of adding a new position and asked her if I would be interested. I’m at least interested in finding out more details on the position, how should I handle this? Email the CFO to set up an appointment? Wait to be asked? We’re in a hiring freeze now which may complicate things a bit.

Any opinions would be welcomed.  Thanks so much!
