I feel like no one's engaging me at work to do anything useful. I'm not sure if it's just the time of year or the amount of work at the company as a whole. But this has been going on for a couple months now.
I notice that when new work comes up in meetings, my name is never mentioned. I'm getting a little worried about this and I wonder if it's time to to start looking. No one has come to me recently to complain about my performance or work recently tho that has happened in the past. I don't think my mistakes were egregious or destructive.
I have asked my boss if I would continue working on the projects we are working on. However that work never materialized and it's usually given to others.
I want to ask my boss for more work, because I don't feel I'm being utilized enough, and I am really bored each day. Plus I want to be useful!
What's the best way to ask my boss for more work? Is there anything wrong with just saying "Hey! Is there anything you want me to work on?" What if he says that there isn't?
Or is it best to look for something else?
