Things To Know If You Hate Your Job

Your twenties are the time when you land up in your first job and more often than not, you really, really hate it. Sometimes it is because it really sucks and other times, it is because you have totally different expectations set on it. So, if you’re at that stage in life where you absolutely hate your job, you’ve got to know these 12 things.

  1. First things first, desk jobs are a reality. Lately, a lot of people have started believing they’re not meant for a 9 to 5 desk job. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a more flexible job, but if you’re going by everything they show in the movies, you need a reality check. Travelling all your life, roaming about aimlessly, living the ultimate wanderer’s life—that’s not how it works in the real world, not for most professions at least.
  2. One bad job can make your whole life go haywire – it’s true. It may demotivate you, make you feel aimless, make you drown in self doubt but truth be told, a bad job will teach you much more in life than the perfect one. So, the next time you feel ‘unlucky’ in life, know that these are your learning times in life, and one good thing this bad job is going to do for you is to make you wiser.
  3. If you think you’re being exploited at work, there’s only so much change a new job will bring to your life. You need to stand up for yourself and fight for what you believe in, because nobody else will. Don’t be scared and run away. Face it, learn to say no, learn to put your foot down and take what’s yours. Your twenties are the time when you learn professionalism so, raise your voice and get things done.
  4. A bad job still doesn’t give you the excuse to be average. You should still aspire to be the best at what you do. It is very easy to put the blame on the job but the bitter reality is, if you don’t grow professionally, the next job you find isn’t going to feel any better, till the time you’re still working there, make it count. Give it your best.
  5. Yes, there are jobs that are just not worth being in but mostly, it is us who fail to see the opportunities around. Quitting isn’t always the solution. Before you consider a job change, make sure you’ve tried everything you could to grab every opportunity coming your way. Always be on a lookout for chances, in your office and outside it.
  6. People spend their entire lives searching for it, chasing ‘the perfect job’ only to realize in the end that ‘the perfect job’ doesn’t really exist. Every job has its own perks and pitfalls. What actually makes it ‘perfect’ is what you make of it. Successful people don’t look for perfect jobs, they make ‘em perfect.
  7. You take up all kinds of jobs to move ahead—the ones that you love, the ones that you hate, the ones that offer great work but no money, the ones that make you into a slave, the ones that pay well but treat badly. Sometimes, you do it for the money, sometimes for the passion, and sometimes just because you wanted to try out something new and there’s nothing wrong in that. Before you get disheartened thinking your present job isn’t leading you anywhere, remind yourself of the reason why you joined in the first place.
  8. Maybe you don’t enjoy your job because it isn’t what you want to do in life. But who said your calling has to be translated into a job? Sometimes, passion is much more fun to pursue when nobody is paying you for it. For some people, passion just doesn’t develop into a career. Some people work only to be able to earn enough to pursue their passion. Make time for something you love to do every day, to balance out a not-so-exciting job. And guess what, the job suddenly won’t suck as much.
  9. Of course, it is understandable if you hate your job – we’ve all been there. But sadly, the ranting isn’t going to help you. Think about what you want instead of what you definitely don’t want. That will help you in your next job, not ranting about how much the present job sucks. Working by the process of elimination could take you a lifetime to figure out what an ideal job is according to you.
  10. Before you jump the gun and decide to quit your job, make sure you’ve raised your concerns with your boss. Sometimes, the work gets too boring and you feel stagnant. Sometimes, just talking it out with your boss opens up a lot more options that you can think.
  11. Never quit without any plans. It’s not always the best to rush into a new job after quitting one, but you should at least have a plan in mind. Quitting without knowing what to do next will feel exhilarating and exciting in the first week, but it will soon corrode your confidence, before you know it. You won’t know what to do with your life and being jobless is only going to make it feel worse.
  12. Lastly, and most importantly, if you’re really that unhappy, just quit. You’re doing your life more harm than cribbing about it pointlessly and wasting weeks. As harsh as it may sound, either do something about it or just deal with it.
