No matter how miserable your boss makes you, don't quit or try to get fired in this bad employment market, Marcia Heroux Pounds writes. Instead, ask your manager what you could be doing to help her with her work, and solicit feedback when you act, she writes. "If you think this is all impossible [some situations are impossible to fix], then do what you can to keep your job at the company while starting to look for another," Pounds writes. "You're always better off finding a new job when you have one."
