I've been in my current position for 10 years.
The last few years have been great and I've been able to develop a good network at upper levels.
Now there is a position above me in a different department that is going to be opening up in the next 6 months.
I'm not in a line of work that would normally be considered for this position. I'm a lawyer and this is more of a strategy position.
How do I go about letting the right people know I'm interested in the potential position?
I'm worried that if I don't approach my contacts in the right way, they might undermine my efforts rather than support me, because the thought of me doing strategy will seem so foreign to them.
Thanks for any advise
