The Muse Teams With HuffPost Third Metric To Offer A Free Course On Being Happier At Work

Career advice destination The Muse is partnering with The Huffington Post's Third Metric to offer a free online class geared toward employees who are feeling trapped in a job they don't like.

The email-based course, called Be Happier At Work, lasts for five days. Each day, participants will get one email with a brief lesson on how to make that day a little happier than usual.

Kathryn Minshew, founder of The Muse, joined HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to share why courses like this one are so important to her.

"You see these statistics that only three out of 10 workers in the U.S. are engaged with their job, and it makes me feel for the rest of the people. Why is it that people aren't engaged?" Minshew said. "Obviously some people should switch jobs or careers, but for those who can't or don't want to right now, how do we connect them with really solid research-based strategies to be happier today, tomorrow, Wednesday in their work and life?"
