How to keep your job

Do what you can to strengthen your relationship with your immediate supervisor. In fact, the most important thing is to have a good relationship with your supervisor. You don't have to become best friends (it's better not to), but if you want to be with your company for a long time, you will need to develop a friendly and respectful relationship with your supervisor. Even if you don't always agree with her or him, try to be respectful and keep a good mood in the presence of your boss.
If you want to complain about something, express your grievances calmly, don't blame the supervisor and don't act as if you don't feel grateful for the opportunity to work.
Try to get to know your supervisor better and ask him or her questions about his or her plans or family. If your manager talks easily about his or her life, take an interest in what he or she has to say.
Keep a positive attitude. If you intend to keep your job, you need to feel good about it. Of course, work situations vary, but you need to remind yourself of what you like about your job and put up with the unpleasant aspects associated with it. Try to complain less about your job and talk more about what you like about it. Your supervisor is more likely to want to keep your job if you have a positive attitude and keep morale up in the office.
For example, if you're a teacher, you probably don't like checking tests and assigning grades. Don't complain about that, but rather talk about how you enjoy working with children.

Colleagues often complain to each other. Try to avoid this trap and change the subject if people start talking about something unpleasant.
Be a good team member. If you don't want to lose your job, you must be able to work as a team member. You should be able to communicate and find common ground with your colleagues and cooperate with them, even if you disagree with each other about something. If everyone thinks of you as someone who is difficult to work with, or who is rude or dismissive of others, or as someone who does not take management's criticism seriously, you will be the first person to get laid off.
You need to be known as someone who can get along with anyone. If you can only get along with one or two people, your supervisor will have a hard time including you on any team, and you will become a liability.
Learn to express disagreement with respect. Don't call your colleagues names, ignore them, or be sure to prove you're right. Rather, listen carefully to people and ask them to explain their point of view, and then calmly state your views.
Be friendly. Smile, say hello to your colleagues and start conversations with them. Don't act like you're above socializing with your colleagues, even if you have a lot to do. When the company is forced to downsize, your supervisor will remember the energy you share in the workplace, and that energy should be positive.
When you have nothing to do, try to help a co-worker do his or her job. Remember that this will keep your company running.
