I’m definitely in a negative funk because of my current place / environment and it’s affecting my interviews at new shops. Have now been told “wrong culture fit” after being flown out. Tough stuff.

I’ve been there before too. Make sure you’re taking care of yourself. Things that helped me: I stopped drinking during the week (only Friday night), I exercised a bit (sometimes just a walk), meditated (I did 5 min in the morning to start) ate well (I avoided sugar and processed food). It took a few weeks but my internal positivity came back and so did good interviews.

I had that too. It’s hard to shake the negativity of your current place when interviewing for a new one. Just focus on your positive experiences as much as you can.

If you’re getting interviews then your book is in a good place that any work your doing now doesn’t really matter in getting a new job. Not knowing your situation and what it is about your current place that’s causing the negativity but you just gotta stop caring. It’s simply your demeanor. So literally stop caring about anything at your current job. Bad coworkers, laugh them off. Bad boss, laugh them off. Seriously, if someone gives you a hard time just smile and say thanks! One, it’ll piss them off that you’re not bothered which always makes me feel good. Two, just smiling will make you feel better. I know this is all easier said then done. I’ve been in bad situations before and I took the route of just quitting to get my mental frame of mind back on track and it took a long time. Don’t work late, focus all of your energy on feeling better and as little energy as possible on your current job.
