Aleksandra Todorova recommends Four Ways to Keep Your Job in a Slowing Job Market
1. Make yourself indispensable
If your manager has to cut 10% of the staff, you certainly don’t want to be at the top of her list.
2. Don’t be high-maintenance
Even if you’re among your company’s top-performing employees, that won’t matter much if you’re a pain in the neck.
3. Stay busy
Now is not the time to take a three-week vacation or shop online at work.
4. Do damage control
Workers between 45 and 60 years old who get the pink slip should consider negotiating with the company to stay at a lower salary.
