look up any word, like bukkake:
 
1.
"Promoted" to a new job or position within a company or organization that is really just a lateral move. The new job/position has little or no increase or decrease in income, power or responsibility. Often the result of organizational restructuring or for other reasons.
"Hey, I heard you got a new job!" "Nah, I just got sidemoted."
