Actions Speak Louder Than Words?
I have been in my current role for several years. A few years ago, I expressed interest in a new role. I told that I was qualified for the role, and that it would be good for my career development, but that I was too critical in my current role to move. A similar role recently opened and there was initially support for making the move, but some managers have expressed the same concern. The role was posted internally and now subject to several rounds of interviews, which I understand is not normal. It feels like the verbal support is being undermined by these actions. I've volunteered to support/ be a resource even after I've changed roles (and developed a growth plan for my backfills and a coverage plan), but the decision process keeps getting extended. Is it time to look for external opportunities if I want to grow beyond my current role?
