10 Ways to Make Yourself Unfireable

3. Work Longer Hours

I’m not suggesting you stay until midnight. I’m not even suggesting you miss prime time. What I am suggesting is that you be prepared to stay until the task at hand is finished.

In the past, you might have left work at 5pm, just short of completing something (reasoning that you’d finish it up in the morning). Nowadays, it’s good practice to stick around that extra half-hour or hour it takes to get it done.

You may also consider coming in 15 minutes early so that you can get yourself organized before the workday begins. You don’t want to be the girl who’s scrambling to start-up her laptop in time for 9 am meeting.
