6 Things To Do Today If You Hate Your Job

When we dislike what we do, our work suffers. We are frustrated and angry all the time. And this relentless hatred can negatively affect our careers.

Being honest and proactive about how we feel is the key to escaping the hatred of what we do for a living. Hoping that things get better rarely works.

If you can’t stand your job, there are a few things that you should be doing right now.

Understand what you hate about your job

For instance, “I don’t like what I do” isn’t precise. But, “I am getting too much busywork, and I feel undervalued and underpaid in my position” is much more specific.

Update your resume and have it ready

I am a huge believer in keeping your resume updated, but this is especially true if your dissatisfaction with your job is high.

For instance, talk to your boss about the issues you’re having. You never know, they might be able to shift your responsibilities or transfer you to another department.

Can you fix the problem without quitting?

If you hate your job, now is the time to get back in touch with your professional network.

Touch base with your professional network

Always keep a lookout. Know what’s available. Go on a few interviews, even if it’s just to practice your interviewing skills.
