Hello! Often times people want to switch departments within the same company, and most of the time that's a great thing. It gives you exposure to a different part of the business and overall should make you a better asset to the organization. I would suggest scheduling a time to chat with your manager about the opportunity and why you are interested in switching career paths. It is better that they know so that 1. they can support you, and 2. they are kept in the loop should another hiring manager reach out to them. Best of luck!
