How can I address this issue with the company or my management that will show that I am not getting this training because I can not go there to get it… I feel like emailing up the food chain at the company to see if I can get something accomplished.Is there a good way to ask my boss for more work, without coming across as “expendable”?What’s the next step above X, and what will you need to do to get there?So now that I’m just “X”, many of my previous responsibilities have been delegated to a new hire, and frankly… I’ve made an effort to “slow down” and even created a new project for myself (I’m in a creative field so this is easy to do) but I’m still finding myself with down time.I really don’t want to leave this job as I like the company’s philosophy, the people/culture, not to mention the fact that jobs in this somewhat niche field are few and far between.
