Depending on what stage you are at in your life, you may have been in your job for a long time. And by a long time I mean more than a year. There are a number of possible reasons why you have come to hate your job: maybe you hate your boss or co-workers, maybe you really don’t enjoy what you do or maybe you have a burning passion to do something else but can’t and resent having to sit at your desk every day. Whatever the reason, you are certainly not alone in this feeling and may even know many of your friends who have this same feeling.
This article will now offer you a few short sharp solutions to your problem:
Quit: Plain and simple. Stand up now and say “I quit” and walk out the door never to return again. There may be a lack of jobs out there, you may need the money, but at the end of the day it is your life and you can do what you want with it. Just don’t forget your jacket though.
Start Fresh: Whether you quit on the spot or work your notice you should plan to start afresh. When you hate your job there will always be a reason for it and the only way for you to get away from this feeling is to start with a clean slate. Change careers completely, work your way up from the bottom but make sure you are doing something you enjoy.
Move Within: If you just can’t leave your company as you need the money or have a family to worry about, one option you may have is to move within your company. If you have been with them for a while there is a good chance that they want to keep you. Appeal to your superiors for a move within the company and try to prove you have some experience in your chosen destination first.
Change location: One option is to move abroad. Often when companies set up offices abroad they will relocate some of their existing staff. Let’s say your offshore trust services is forming a Cyprus company, you could be the first one with your hand up, offer to take a pay cut and be the first on the plane over to their new Cyprus offshore company.
Ask Why You Hate It: Last option is to look at why you hate your existing job and try to fix what you don’t like about it. Complain about your co-workers if that is the problem or do whatever you can to make your work life happier. After all most employers should know that happy employees are efficient employees.
