It's my first job for that matter. It has been two months since I joined this job. I am a Linux Systems Administrator but clearly I feel I'm not being mentored as I should. My manager told a senior colleague to mentor me and another senior colleague to mentor another guy. That other guy is getting mentored whereas I'm not getting mentored by the senior colleague.
Neither am I being relied to do projects or tasks. They show zero confidence in me. I've anxiety, I know that, but at least I deserve a chance.
However, at the same time, I hear lots of praise from related managers. They say they love my dedication to learning new skills.
I really don't know what's going on? I'm seriously planning to quit this job once I feel confident of my skills and know I can get a better job elsewhere where I'm relied upon and trusted. Currently, I am dedicating day and night to learning various related things for the job so that even if I have to remove this experience from my resume, it won't look that bad.
What else could I do? Should I talk to my manager about the lack of responsibilities? The colleague in question also came at the same time as me but is receiving lots of responsibilities and is relied upon. Even though the responsibilities be as small as calling someone.
Update on the situation: I contacted the manager about this and asked for more responsibilities. But I'm still being under-responsible. They are giving me little responsibilities compared to the other guy. When I talked about this to my manager indirectly, he was telling me that the more responsibilities you've, the more the salary you'll get. My performance hasn't been bad at all. My flaws are I'm not a highly social person, but except that I am normal. Is this time for "quiet quitting"?
