How to be happy at work: the three things you need to find career bliss

You’ve got a toxic boss.

You suffer from the Sunday Scaries.

You just can’t get excited about your job.

If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Gallup polls consistently report that nearly two thirds of employees are either actively disengaged or ambivalent about their jobs. That’s not good.

Sure, at Monster, we’re happy to help you find a new and better job, but if you haven’t found your perfect fit just yet, there are things you can do to make a bad situation better.

On our podcast, McKee walks us through her strategies for adding three happiness boosters to re-engage and enjoy your job:

  • Purpose: A chance to contribute to something bigger than yourself
  • Hope: A sense of connection to and belief in your work and company
  • Friendship: Resonant, friendly relationships that make work fun

Take a listen, and if you still can’t get your job mojo going, we’ve got some jobs you might want to check out.
