New research has revealed that only one in ten workers believe they are currently in their perfect job.
The survey, conducted by Monster, also discovered that 14 per cent do not think that the perfect job exists, Online Recruitment reports.
In the rest of Europe, employees were not much more optimistic, as only three per cent of people in Spain and six per cent of French workers believe they are in the perfect job.
Germans were the most negative about future employment prospects, as 31 per cent do not think their ideal job is waiting for them.
Julian Acquari from Monster UK, said people should "take the opportunity to look into pursuing their ideal job and how they can achieve it, whether through training courses, revamping their CVs or perfecting interview techniques".
A spokesperson for ClickAJob goes further, insisting that people should look for passion.
"Merely doing a job for the income is a drudge, a stop-gap to getting a real life," he points out.
"There's no interest, no commitment, just a feeling of being in a rut that drives a surprising number of people to change their job every few years."
"What's missing is the fire, the intense involvement with work that fuels your enthusiasm, a whole different state of mind," he continues.
"If what you do is your life, it doesn't feel like work any more - you own the future and can do anything."
A study published by the Guardian and Barkers recently revealed that jobseekers with an optimistic attitude are more likely to secure employment.
