what to do if Boss has preconceived notions and is very angry personality

i am working in a telecom industry for arnd 4 years. in these 4 years i got 1 promotion and 1 salary hike. i got a chance to work with 3 bosses. all left because of better opportunities. as and when they left, by default i handled the team. now i have been moved under a new boss, who thinks and keeps on proving that i am worthless. he doubts my capabilities. if i ask him to guide me what to do and how to do.. (to meet his expectations) he says he has no time to teach me. if i do my own and make minor changes or new formats.. he says i dont know what wisdom you have used. he always keeps on comparing me with others, who are junior to me. He has demotivated that i have lost my confidence and dont want to go to office. but can't leave job

Dear Nutty,
You should start an active search for a new job. A job search takes time and you need to be patient.

For job search tips and guidance, I suggest you read my blog using the two links below:

http://fixerline.com/fixer-talk/12/the-career-switch

Till the time you get a new job, I suggest that you adopt these two approaches:
1) Remind yourself on a daily basis that this is a temporary job and soon shall pass.
2) Ignore your boss and his nasty comments. When he observes that they have no impact on you, I think he will stop it. For every work that you do give him the credit directly/indirectly.

Best of luck from Fixerline!
