Moved to a new role internally. Once my transition was approved I was told I also needed to work my current gig in addition to my new role for an additional few months. This happen to anyone else...

...and any suggestions for making sure it doesn't go beyond a few months? It currently feels totally out of my control.

I would give it 2 months tops before you check in on the progress of replacement and then a monthly check in if it continues giving them a definitive time period you continue with the dual role. If you begin to be overwhelmed speak up before things get back, you want to set yourself up for success and doing 2 jobs badly is much worse.

Is it just during the backfill period?

Hey guys/gals. Hoping to get some guidance on here. I’m considering making a pivot into industry (Big Pharma specifically) towards the end of next year (right after I’m up for promotion to Manager). Ideally exiting into industry in the marketing function. The problem is I’m not sure what marketing role my background best prepares me for. More on my background below…

Are the exit opportunities better in Internal Audit/Business Process than IT Audit? All I hear is how awful IT Audit is but don’t hear as much complaining from the business side
