This job, you would flourish not especially. You are because it is necessary to pay the rent and the bills. You're ready to drop. Not so fast. This experience may have good sides.
There are sometimes good reasons to cling to, some time on a job even if it is boring. Here are five ways to see the glass half full.
1. This is your first real job
Your CV is full of jobs with no future, missions, acting, and then you hold your first "real" post. Except that, in the end, it turns out rather disappointing. "If you resign at the end of a few months, it will be difficult to make the best of your too short mission in the face of a recruiter. The move can be disadvantaged," warns Pierre Lamblin, director of the department of Studies and Research in Apec.

this is A view shared by Florence Roussel manager of the firm HRF Board: "With this first post, you prove that you have finally acquired a certain degree of stability. It's worth it to persevere, and why not, see how to make it more attractive."
2. The box is growing
If you végétez in a company which has development prospects, take your evil in patience. "The company has may be the ambition of making the external growth, acquiring new structures on specific geographical areas or professions quite different. What you suggests that an evolution is possible in terms of geographic mobility or functions. Hold on! You will always have time to leave later if nothing concrete is available to you," advises Jérôme Jouanneau-Courville, a partner with the firm of Norman Alex recruitment specialist banking.

3. There is promotion in the air
Another good reason to stay: the possibility of evolving hierarchically. "Take retail, the sector of public works or chains of fast-food. We can start at the bottom of the scale in a low valuing, and finishing manager, based on his performance and his personality!", stresses Pierre Lamblin of Apec.

in addition, the retirements have a tendency to speed up, leaving the door open to numerous internal promotions. So much opportunity for... the patients ! "You know that a manager retires in a year or two and you have the potential to take his position. (It is perhaps worth waiting for," says Jérôme Jouanneau-Courville, Norman Alex.
4. The company is the top
We can occupy a job boring but end up in a box pleasant. "Some may focus on the professional environment, the atmosphere in the team, the colleagues who have become friends", lists Florence Roussel of FRHConseil. "We can also do not want to move on because the business is renowned, and as this can enhance a CV, to be a key step in a route, before bouncing elsewhere." The company may also present certain advantages. "For example, the work begins early in the morning. This leaves the afternoon to build another life, sporting or cultural, or to find a new job," reports Pierre Lamblin.

5. The recruiters prefer employees
It is regrettably the truth, demonstrated by several studies. "If you really don't see any interest to you mope around in this business, hang in there while applying, because recruiters prefer people post for people who are unemployed," explains Florence Roussel. "In any case, do not leave the flower in the rifle. A departure cannot be decreed, it anticipates and matures, even more so if you want to change jobs," warns Pierre Lamblin of Apec.
