I am relatively new to my current role, being hired as a 'Junior' on a low salary because of my lack of experience with CAD. As part of the hiring process I was told that I would be training with someone more experienced in another city. I completed this but it was a huge overload of information and much of it has leaked out of my brain.
Of course I am much slower and produce often worse results then the more experienced team member. Therefore, when a task comes along that involves CAD, it is much easier for management to give it to him. This was fine as I had a long list of job specific software and scripts that I was writing for the company.
However, after about 8 months I had worked my way though that list. It has been 2 months now with only spontaneous and small jobs taking less than an hour to complete coming my way less than once a week, I am bored.
What I have Tried
Before the Christmas break I scheduled a meeting with my boss and spoke to him about my concerns, including my belief that I'll never get better at completing these designs if I don't have any allocated to me. He agreed and said that he would try to allocate me some non time sensitive tasks - asking me to complete to the best of my ability and not rush them.
It has now been over a week since we've been back and it looks like a repeat of December; my inbox has been empty the whole time.
Emails sent this week seem to have fallen on deaf ears. Is it time to leave or is there another resolution that I'm not seeing?
