I am doing an internship at a company. For a while now I really have been disappointed with the sort of work I've been doing. I haven't really gotten to work with any code, with any of the developers, or really even with anything that feels computer science related.
I've been given some data to sort through, which basically just involves me copy-pasting a file name into windows explorer, and marking down some things in an excel file, repeat about 1500 times. I don't want to be too specific, but none of this is even slightly related to code, programming, anything.
I've seen some other questions on here about people doing internship and saying they were dissatisfied with what they were doing, and they were doing things that would be massive improvements for me: even just having an IDE on the screen in front of me would be a godsend.
That being said, it's a very nice company and I'd love the experience to put on my CV, so I'm a bit hesitant to rock the boat and ask the person responsible for me if I might be able to just, y'know, completely shift teams (since there's a team of developers in the company, and at the moment I'm essentially working for a team responsible for something completely different).
Is this normal? Should I talk to someone about getting reassigned to do something different? I don't want to complain that I'm not getting super exciting work, because as an intern, I know it's very customary to not get exciting work, but simultaneously, as nice as it sounds on my CV, the work I am doing now is not even slightly related to what I want to do in the future.
