Just Started New Job & Already Hate It

Dear Experts, I started a new job two weeks ago and I already have a bad feeling about it. I don't like my boss and I don't like the people I work with. I can't leave because I had a hard enough time landing this job as it is. What advice do you have for coping with this sort of situation? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#221 Put ur best foot forward & treat it as a learning experience. Continue your search! (@DebraWheatman) Q#221 Same thing happened to me a few years ago and it's tough. I coped by re-doubling my job-search efforts after hours. (@gradversity) Q#221 Attitude plays big part. Be positive, learn what you can while there. May get better. Start search again. (@dawnbugni) Q#221 Agree w/@Keppie_Careers. It hasn't been long enough to really judge. Explore the co. for positives. (@heatherhuhman) Q#221 Find what U DO like about job. Seek projects/work to propel career forward if possible. Give it time. (@Keppie_Careers) Q#221 Be honest w/boss. Tell 'em it's not a fit. Maybe you can work together on something. Why'd U even start? (@beneubanks) Q#221 Trust your gut & keep looking; meanwhile, look 4 what u can lrn, do your best work, focus on positive (@juliaerickson) Q#221 2 weeks isn't really long enough to judge; try to keep an open mind and give it a few months; you might be surprised (@AskAManager) Q#221 Put the job search you started before you got the position back in motion & try to gain new skills while you're there.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
