Most likely reasons for getting a Pink Slip!

Last Updated on March 20, 2015

The chances of you getting a pink slip doubles if you fall in more than three of the following categories:

  • You find yourself unaware from what’s going on in the business. You feel aloof from all the new gossips and other things happening around in the company. This means you have been quite inattentive lately about inside business news and strategies.
  • Made a huge mistake  lately? Have you done something that you shouldn’t have and now you are in big trouble? Well if that is the case, than you should be ready to face the music. Always think twice before messing up something if you don’t want to screw your career right in the middle.
  • Do you office mates dislike you? If you feel you are being abandoned by your colleagues than prepare yourself because that isn’t a good sign. It generally means people around you want to get rid of you. The bells are ringing if you see its hard to even come up with small talk at the coffee stand.
  • Your last performance appraisal wasn’t satisfying enough? You should make sure your performance review does not contain many negative aspects of your work.
  • Your company is going through tough financial times? If yes, than you should be mentally prepared to pack your stuff and leave because you know the new merger or something similar will bring in a new administration and new workers.
