I hate my job so much I spend half of my day and all weekend applying for new jobs, modifying my resume and cover letter, browsing through LinkedIn and Glassdoor, and just recently I’ve gotten into creating a portfolio. I’m also hoping my manager gives me the option to either put me on PIP or just give me a severance package to voluntarily leave. Of course I’ll take the severance package. I literally wake up and go to bed dreaming about having a new job. I don’t think about anything else.
