I am wanting to transfer from my current hospital campus which is stationed in the community to the central campus downtown. There is a position open that is perfect for me.
I am worried because I don't want my current manager to know what I'm doing. I'd rather put in an application, get the job and then let him know I'm transferring. Does requesting a transfer within the same hospital system automatically go to your manager? I'm afraid to apply because I don't want him to question me or worse fire me for wanting to leave. I know that my current place is short handed and I don't want to upset anyone.
Are any applications I do within the system private until I choose to divulge it to my superiors?
