Am I within my scope to ask to be chosen for a big initiative as a direct employee? If so, how should I do it?
Next year, my boss is going to get someone certified to train others at our plant. I would like to be the certified trainer.
On one hand, I feel I should ask for this assignment because I would like it known that it is my preference. On the other hand, I feel it may be over-reaching. I have other development plans and tasks that may be assigned to me. Perhaps my boss and even senior management has a different coarse in mind for me/others. I feel I should bring this up now since I know they are doing resource/project planning for next year. I am afraid if I wait until the objectives discussion in January, I may have missed my opportunity.
Thanks in advance for all the advice
