You got a job, congratulations! How to keep it

Work Hard: Focus on your job and give your employer the time you're getting paid for. When it comes to making lay-off decisions, and the company has to choose, the most productive employees will get to keep the job.

Be On Time: The workers who are late to work, take a long lunch hour, use a ton of sick time, and/or leave early every day aren't going to win any points with their boss. Be punctual and be there, instead of making excuses for why you can't be at work. Be a Team Player: The employees who don't get along well with others, who gossip about other workers, or who are not willing to pitch in to help, aren't going to be appreciated. Be Flexible: Flexibility can be a key component of hanging on to your job. When the company needs someone to change shifts, work weekends, put in some overtime, or work a different schedule, think about volunteering if your personal schedule permits. Offer to Help: One of the best ways to get (or keep) job security is to volunteer for new initiatives, to offer to help with projects, and to take on more responsibility. Be Approachable: Say “Hi” to everyone in the morning and go out to lunch with the crew every once in a while. Keep Your Thoughts to Yourself: Even if you don't like your job, keep it to yourself and your family or close friends. Don't tell the world, because the wrong person is probably going to hear about it, and that can cost you your job.  Be Positive. Negativity is contagious, but so is a positive attitude. The more you stay positive, even if you're in a tough situation, the better you'll be able to manage. Maybe it's not your favorite job, however, it is a paycheck and if you need the income, it is better to stay until you secure a new position. Be Appreciative: Thank those who have helped you out. Make sure that people above you and below you understand that you are thankful for their assistance, input and advice.
