What’s the best advice you can give to someone who is looking to move up in their role or has shown interest in a different role or department?
Everyone should participate in job shadow month to learn more about the different departments that they might be interested in. When paired with someone from the department that you would like to join, don’t be afraid to ask them questions and offer to help/be involved after job shadowing ends. Keep networking with individuals in the department that you would like to join and schedule time to learn more about their day-to-day. If you would like to build more skills in the area that you’re interested in, use your education stipend toward certifications that will help you in your next move.
