How To Keep Your Job
How To Keep Your Job

We assume you need your job…and we hope you like it!

Lifehacker put together a list of ways to be indispensable at your job…so you can STAY at your job!  They are:

Work on vital projects with high visibility  Experts say you should maintain a valued presence.  Here’s what that means:  DON’T be someone who labors in silence behind a closed door (even IF you’re doing good work).   Instead, ask to work on big projects, and make sure you’re key to their success.

Make your boss’s priorities YOUR priorities  Even if they SEEM strange to YOU.  Obviously it depends on your boss, but it could be a lot of things:  Be faster . . . be more efficient . . . know how to prioritize . . . ask good questions, whatever.

Get training to boost your skill set  One of the best ways to be valued is to have skills that are in high demand.  Try to be an expert at something.  A few training sessions in a niche skill can give you an advantage over your co-workers.

Update your resume and be open to opportunity  You may not be planning to leave your job but if your skill set is competitive, other companies will want you…and that makes you even MORE valuable at your current job.

Put these items on your “To Do” list today!
