10 Ways to Make Yourself Unfireable

10. Be Visible

Modesty is a sweet quality. Except, of course, in a recession.

If you’re working late, helping others and/or coming up with new, killer ideas, make sure someone (other than your mother) knows about it.

Give your manager regular updates on your progress. Even a weekly or semi-weekly recap of your accomplishments, sent by email, will do the trick. You’re not bragging, you’re just making sure they know what you’ve been working on.

Let’s face it: if you don’t toot your own horn, no one else will.
