I work as an administrative assistant recently I was tasked to do a project which I finished in a timely manner. When I finished I asked the Executive Director if she had anything else for me, she responded that there wasn't and to continue working with what I am doing.
There wasn't anything else for me to do, except do a rundown and ensure that my work was accurate. I approached her again recently and asked if there was again anything else to do, she had assured me that I was doing a great job and to just stay focused and "continue on with what I was doing" (Assuming this meant the rundown). I am feeling self-conscious because it has been 4 weeks now, and I am technical if anything doing nothing, kind of. I am trying to keep myself busy with the rundown but there isn't any accountability and without any responses or feedback to my work, it puts me in a state of anxiety.
Overall my question is am I doing something wrong by "continuing what I am doing?" or should I be assertive and request more work just to feel valued or important at work (if that makes sense)?
