I know a little bit about a lot of areas in my field. My current roles cover several departments (QA/QC, procurement, etc.), however I would consider myself a subject matter expert in at least one niche. Unfortunately, my company, now post merger, it is considered an administrative function (i.e. the same level as receptionist). This is not the case within other organizations in my profession! I have my CAPM and my current company is very much projectized. How can I position myself to transition into a PM role or management? I regularly read the article and suggestions on this site and find that I already follow most of the criteria: collaborate, lead, train coworkers, mentor and mentee roles, etc. The last bit of information pertinent to this post is that my company has recently gone through a merger. Clearly they see me as an asset, because I was offered a retention bonus while others were not and several were laid off. Unfortunately, my new management seek to utilize me more as an errand girl and have openly stated that they sought to reduce my other roles. It does seem as if upper management has stopped this action (so far) as my input is still needed for successful integration. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
