@nber0815:  What a bummer of the situation!  Have you approached your boss to ask for more diverse assignments?  They might be able to work with you if they know you’re feeling stagnant 🙂

First, you might think it’s easy but that doesn’t mean it is, you could just be that good at it! Second, I would let your supervisor know that you are willing to take on more work. Offer to assist other departments or let them know you are wanting to expand your knowledge in the company. Chances are they may be willing to give you more challenging assignments and you won’t even have to look for a new job. All that being said I do believe there comes a time with certain jobs that you just hit your ceiling but only you can be the judge of that.

Talk to your boss. Tell her that you love the organization, but you’re ready for more responsibility and you’d either like her to 1) give you more work or 2) let you know when more job opportunities come up within the company that you can apply for. It is not easy to find a job where you like who you’re working with or under, so definitely make sure you’ve exhausted your options at this organization before looking elsewhere.

It never hurts to window shop and see what is out there.

I think you should bring it up with your boss again. Say that you would really like to take on more and be challenged more! Ask about that position that will be opening up 🙂

I salute you for craving more challenging work!  I have come to the realization that I am a deeply lazy creature, and if I had a job that was “laughably easy” you’d have to pry it from my cold dead fingers!

By all means, talk to your boss about taking on some more varied work and increasing your responsibilities.  I think he/she would be impressed with your initiative!
