I want to move up in my workplace. I work in a secure FT Govt job but it is a bit of a dead-end role (super niche). I know you have to declare all forms of secondary income as it needs to be approved by management but I was unsure if a side-hustle in its fledgling stage would count. I would only be working on it during my time-off and it has not conflict of interest with my current work.
I want to do this so I can improve my skill-set and have something more relevant on my resume so I can move up and apply for other jobs.
How would you guys approach it?
