If you're unhappy at work, you don't have to live with it. And you don't have to quit. Here's how to make the most of an imperfect job situation.
Be clear about what you don't like. You likely can't alter your job description, but you may be able to minimize the time you spend doing unwanted tasks.
Make social connections. Stronger emotional ties to your co-workers can have a positive effect on your attitude. Spend time with colleagues you like, and avoid those you don't.
- Keep your options open. You may be stuck due to a bad economy or limited openings in your industry, but circumstances may change. Be sure your resume and your LinkedIn profile are up to date and that you are continually meeting people in your field.
