Hi everyone. Here's my current situation, I'd appreciate any advice!


I started working at my current job at the end of May (3 months ago). I moved to this job from another office in the same organization, doing the same work (except I'm now full-time). I have been with the organization for over a year now. However, my current job is considered to be temporary, as the company is doing major restructuring, with some jobs being lost. I've been led to believe that I am safe, but as of yet I have heard absolutely nothing official.

Here's the dilemma: I have looked at other job postings within the company and there are 2 openings for the exact same position I have now, in another state that I've always wanted to move to. The kicker is, the application is due by this Friday, and my boss is on vacation all week! I have no way to get in touch with her, and I don't want to feel like I went behind her back, especially since I've only been here in my current office for 3 months. However, I don't feel 100% secure here. I'm thinking I still apply for these other jobs anyway. After all, I have to look out for myself, right? Plus, I'd still be working for the same organization, doing what I love. I guess the real problem is that I'd feel like I'm betraying my boss, who counts on me for a lot.
