Tips for Keeping Your Job, and Building a Future
Remember, those qualities that helped you get the job are those that will help you to keep it.
The two main reasons that people are not kept on are - Inability to get along with others (supervisors, workmates or customers), and Absenteeism (not being at work reliably).
Do your very best in your present job. Do a little more than is expected, stay behind after hours to help get the job done.
Volunteer for extra work/responsibility.
Be cheerful, helpful and friendly.
Don’t let your emotions rule your work life. Before quarrelling with a workmate or supervisor, ask yourself will it be really worth it in the long run.
Leave your personal problems at home. Remember your problems are your problems, not your employers.
Learn all you can about your current job, the job you would like to advance to, and the company in general.
If you want to advance, volunteer for extra duties and consider doing some study in the field you are working in. Qualifications will always help.
Let your supervisor know if you are interested in advancement. If a suitable vacancy comes up, ask to be considered for it.
When you accept a position, give it a fair go. Stay with it for at least six months. During this time you will learn the job, sell yourself to your boss, and establish a good work reference for the future.
There is no reason why any job should be a dead end job for the right person. The shop assistant may become a store manager, the process worker a supervisor, and the dishwasher may eventually establish their own restaurant. At the very least, a good work record will enable your employer to give you an excellent reference, and will improve your chances of getting a better job with another company.
