Question: I am in a position where my workload is very low. Sometimes, I have nothing to do, except maybe a little photocopying or handling the mail.
Sometimes, I have to create work, if I can. But there is only so much work a person can create.
The classes that I took in the past (Excel, PowerPoint) go unused because I’m never asked to work in Excel or PowerPoint.
Because I have been in this department so long, I’m afraid to move on because my skills have gone down and I’m a bit afraid that I may not be able to handle the next job. Plus, some bosses don’t treat assistants well. I would hate to lose my job altogether.
I need some encouragement or advice as to what I should do while I’m here in this position. I’m at a loss. Thank you. -- Anonymous
