1-2 of 2Job Security
Every job you do for your employer is a reflection of you, no matter how small or menial the job may seem. Never give a bad reflection. Take pride in what you do and never give less than 100%. The work you do is also a reflection of the Company you work for. You may not like your employer but THEY PAY YOU. The better a company looks the more money they make, in turn, you have more to bargain with for better pay. They have the funds and you have helped them achieve that.
"Righsizing" employees to balance the budget is brutal and backhanded.
Never think that there is job security. After 14 years of excellent service to the vice president of a community college, I was "laterally transferred" to an entry level job. Remember that administrators are playing their own game of chess and they must keep their soldiers close. I was in the way of getting her girlfried into my job, so I was moved to a job that will probably be terminated due to lack of work. Remember: life is not logical or fair!
