... and we are in lateral roles, although we have different responsibilities. I am much more interested in her role than mine, and I know we are beginning to hire to fill her spot. How do I put myself up for her role, since it isn't a natural way to progress my career? I feel like it just be more of a hassle for our manager to have to train me for her role and someone for mine, so he is unlikely to let me do it. But I think I will be upset at myself if I don't try. Has anyone tried to make a lateral move like this before?
