I have been working for this company for 18 months now. At the beginning, the job was very good. But as time passed business began to slow down. Currently the business is at an all time low. The problem that I am facing right now is that we are six people of the same work profile, and I have the least experience.
For quite a time now, say 4 months, my boss has not communicated with me at all - very few mail exchanges and very limited conversation. I am not getting any kind of work assignments here either, and it seems like I have just been killing time for months.
What should I do?
Since the company I am working belongs to a niche industry and there are hardly any competitors, should I look into changing my work profile? How easy is it to change your work profile and industry nowadays? I am a mechanical engineer by qualification.
