Why do some universities push you towards a career where you have no experience?
My professors are great, but I am finding that now that I am in the work force that I do not have the proper background for the position. How can they guide you you one way because you do feel passion for it, but didn't know you will never be a complete success. You owe money and you need to work and you thought getting a better education would give you more, but it doesn't even let you in the door. #college-major #college-admissions #government #recruiting #homeland-security #legislative-research
Here are nine tips on how to be happy at a job you hate:
Stay out of drama. Keep away from contentious people.
Initiate a new project. Tie it to a new skill you want to learn or practice.
Choose a better perspective. Look for opportunities and wins instead of shortcomings and faults.
Find a buddy. Research shows people that have friends at work have a higher rate of career satisfaction.
Learn something new. Read a book, read an article, take an on-line course. Find a way to get new information and let it inspire you.
Practice gratitude. Be grateful for what you do have and what you have the potential to create.
Stop talking about how bad things are. Lift the weight of your environment by speaking positively about your work, your co-workers, and your company.
Keep working towards your passion. Whether it is five hours or five minutes, find a way to incorporate what you are passionate about into your routine.
Get a life. If you are pouring all of yourself into work that’s not satisfying, create a better balance by adding more “extra-curricular” activities.
Bottom line: You don’t have to be miserable even if you are in a miserable job. Taking responsibility for creating your own happiness at work puts you back in the driver’s seat of your career where you belong.
I wish you good luck!!!!
