If you’ve never experienced that feeling of hating your job, consider yourself lucky. Most people have had times where they’ve asked themselves, “What am I doing here, doing this?” The obvious answer to the problem would be that you need to quit and get another job. But the reality is usually quite different. In a highly competitive job market it’s not so easy to simply land another job. Plus, you still have to pay for the roof over your head and the food in your fridge.
This doesn’t mean you should make peace with that hating your job depression, or that you should flip your desk upside down and storm out while yelling dramatically, “I quit!” Instead, here’s what you should do if you hate your job but getting out isn’t an option just yet.
