Dear Evil HR Lady,
I hate my job. My co-workers are idiots. My boss is demanding. The work is dull and I’m underpaid. What can I do?
Get a new job. Or increase your social life so that work doesn’t take as much out of you. But, really, get a new job.
I know, I know, that wasn’t the advice you wanted. People often feel trapped in their job. Getting a new one is scary. Interviewing stinks. Using all your vacation time to interview rather than lounging around on the beach in Tahiti is a pain. But, if you truly hate your job, get a new one.
There are other companies that will offer benefits and pay you a salary. Truly, there are. And if you simply can’t find one, then I suggest that you are not underpaid in your current job.
Good luck with your job search!
