How to Bulletproof Your Jobwww.comparecards.com/blog/credit-economy/h
If you work for somebody else, you’re living dangerously. As millions now know from personal experience, you could be fired, let go, laid off or otherwise stripped of your employment with little or no warning, little or no severance pay, and probably not even a “Thank you” for all your loyal and dedicated service.
If this happens, and you have little or no cash reserves or other tangible assets, your first thought would probably be: “How will I be able to buy food for my family?”
But don’t overlook another financial problem: How will you pay your credit card bills, car loan, signature loan, and the rent or mortgage?
Therefore, if you still have a job, and it’s a good job, you should do everything you can to keep it.
For practical tips, read the 2008 book, Bulletproof Your Job: 4 Simple Strategies to Ride Out the Rough Times and Come Out on Top at Work.
Those four simple strategies, the author says, are:
“1. Be visible. If your superiors don’t see you or know who you are, you’re very easy to let go. Out of sight, out of mind, and—poof!—you’re gone.
“2. Be easy. Easy to work with, talk with, be with.
“3. Be useful. Do your job well, all the time, and do more than your job, too.
“4. Be ready. Have money in the bank, keep your resume current, improve your networking skills, help others, be active in professional associations, and learn new skills.”
It’s also a good idea to pay down your credit cards so you’ll have more available credit.
