What is the best job for me?

I am currently an executive assistant at a top twenty hedge fund. I am incredibly bored with my job but seem to not have the resume to find something more demanding or creative-possibly in investor or public relations. I have worked for some of the best investment firms in the country but always as an assistant-though typically for the "boss"-I've worked for the CEO of a mulitnational company, regional manager of one of the most well known investment banks and, as I mentioned before, presently for the head of a hedge fund. I have a degree in history/English as well as various securities licenses. I'd like to move into a position that would allow for learning and growth into a new field but am not interested in sales or financial planning. Any ideas?

what do you have to offer? Just because someone is a medical assistant, doesn't mean I want them to operate on me. Not sure if you would want to start over. Doing 80 hour weeks and making 50% of what you do now.
