    advice for bored grant writer Archived Message

    This may be a little bit different but I thought I would toss this out there for feedback. I was hired as a part-time grantwriter 6 months ago and the pay is decent. Grantwriting is what I do for a living and opportunities in my area are few. The dilemma is this. I am bored to tears nearly every day. I practially beg for things to do with no avail. I feel like I am being so underutilized. The company is currently in bankruptcy and have other situations that make it almost impossible to secure funding. I hate to bring this up to the Director because I really do not want to talk myself out of a job. I have asked for other areas to work on but have been denied and just the other day the Director told me he wished he could hire me full time because he had enough work to keep me busy. Any ideas before I go crazy here?
