When people are told to leave, they are usually shocked, but in many cases, the text will be written on the wall. It’s just that the employees didn’t read these and take corrective actions. We look at some of these signs.
1. You did not learn any new skills
Employees need to continuously improve their skills to stay ahead. With the introduction of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), this has become easier.These are very cheap, some are even free, and then you can learn jobs. Make sure your boss Know when you register.
2. You don’t get along with colleagues
Interpersonal skills are essential in the workplace. Your promotion in the company depends on 20% ability and 80% attitude. The same is true in terms of dismissal. Even if your performance is above average but you don’t get along with others, you may be the first person to be fired. Fix the fence before it’s too late.
3. You do less work
If you do less work than last year, then there is reason to worry.More work is coming to show your the company Believe in your abilities. On the other hand, less work may mean that the individual is not really needed. Volunteering requires a proactive approach. So, don’t wait for someone to call for help, look for them.
4. Your salary increase has been below average
Your annual salary increase largely shows how much your company loves you. If your interest rate hike is below average, then you are obviously not in a good book. If the company starts to shrink, you may be at a greater risk of being fired. The best way to solve this problem is to talk to your boss. Accept the blame, but resolve to work harder.
5. Do not consult you
If no one is asking for your opinion, and you know nothing about what is happening, then your ideas will not be considered useful. Instead of indulging in self-pity, understand why you are marginalized and ask your boss for feedback. Before you do this, do a trial run. Identify a colleague who can honestly and objectively comment on your performance and offer constructive criticism.
6. You do not perform core functions
Jobs in departments that are not related to the company’s core functions are particularly at risk. In short, your work is safe only if it is essential to the survival of the business. Information flow is very important to understand what is happening. However, if you are in a peripheral role, you must work harder to get into the loop.
7. Your company is facing problems
The same problem can be manifested on a broader level. If your company is facing financial pressure, it may reduce some non-essential positions.

The recruiter has been there and heard about it. Unfortunately, candidates still insist on using phrases such as “I give 110%” or “I am passionate about my work.” They will only take up space on your resume.
