I am working in the IT as a java developer for 2.5 years now. During the lockdown period, my productivity got a little low due to which, I think, my boss has put me on customer support role which primarily deals tickets with utmost priority when there is a request from customers. But most of the time there are no requests and I only get to work on lower priority tasks.
A senior colleague of mine just said that there would not be much learning here but I should be available whenever there is a request. My boss also confirmed that I should continue on this role for 2 months. Is looking for a new job at this time a good choice right now as I feel I have been almost put on bench in my company?
How do I discuss about this with my boss that this current position is not helping for any growth for my career?
