So let me start by saying that I love the team I work with, but for the last year I have been "temporarily" reassigned to a different job without my team, and it feels like I will never get back to them.
Then there is the fact that I am making far less than my experience and education warrant. This all has caused me to actively look at other jobs within the university that I am already qualified for and would be a step up in the right direction, as well as a sizeable raise in pay, instead of feeling like I am going backward or standing still. I am seriously considering moving on. I have a great relationship with my teammates and direct supervisor. My question is simple, should I make my supervisor and team aware that I am searching for a new position? I don't want them to be blindsided and I feel like I am hiding from them and myself, but I also don't want to damage our working relationship when I don't even have an interview or job offer. I have been with my team for 2 out of the 3 years I have been with the university. Should I even be looking at new positions? Or should I stick it out with my team? I know I deserve to be paid what I am worth and I feel like that may only happen if I move on. I am very torn, my husband thinks that I should be applying to other positions to get paid what my experience warrants. What would you do if you were in my shoes?
