@mjf99:  Does the place where you do nothing pay you a paycheck? Yes? Then stay there for now until you find something that is better suited for you. Do not quit the job before having something lined up (as you have $60k student loans to pay off after all…). You can do the following:

1) Try to lateral at your current place. Keep your eyes open and see if there is someone there that is overworked – that means that there is most likely demand in that person’s area. Approach the person and ask if you could help out with anything and then do so. Keep helping out until you are noticed for reaching out and being proactive. Then your role may either get revamped or you may be asked to switch to that person’s area. I’ve seen this happen a lot.

2) Focus 500% on finding another job while employed in your current job. The fact that you have nothing to do at your current job is worrying. You definitely need to think about your job security. Finding another job is one way to help with the job security aspect.

3) Whatever you do, do not sit idle at your current job. Be proactive – find that overworked soul and find something to do. Or put a lot of effort into looking for another job. 

Hope this helps!

Uh, if you have some experience in Web Design, get on that and rack up some experience. Web Design is HUGE right now, especially if you can code and develop it. 

Does your current workplace have a website? Maybe you could make one for them and manage all of it. That would eat up a lot of time, trust me. I definitely say stay and make the most of it. Don’t leave that job until you have another lined up.

EDIT: I just saw the part where you said you didn’t want to do design. But I still say you should definitely not leave that job until you find another.
