Q. I’m a recent graduate with a degree in computer engineering, and I work at a software company. After six months, I realized that this job wasn’t my thing, and I want to pursue software development. I talked to my boss about a move and she said I can’t request a transfer until 12 to 18 months on this job so she can get her full investment in me. I just find this ridiculous. I’m putting my career on hold. I am in my ninth month and hate my job. I really want to stay in this company. Should I talk to her boss? Should I go to HR?
