What do you do when there's zero deal flow?

Wondering what you guys would do if faced in a similar situation: I’ve been working as an associate at a buy-side firm (based in Asia) for a year now. There’s been zero deal flow, lukewarm investor interest and unfortunately the markets that I cover are “low priority” within my company.

Probably start looking for another job. I’m not trying to be flip, but that sounds pretty bad. If you can transfer teams, that would also be a good option.

Depends how you look like. If you’re good looking, go into sales. If you’re not, then like bromion said, it sounds pretty bad.
