So you just got a job — do you know how to keep it? These tips from 1969 still hit the mark in today’s world.
Our library has recently added a copy of a fun (and still very relevant) 1969 publication from the Colorado Division of Employment called “Your Job…How to Lose it!”
Most employers say they want:
- Good attendance
Some ways to lose your job:
- Be late for work
- Don’t show up
- Don’t call in when you’re sick
- Leave without an okay for time off
- Tell your boss off
- Fight with your fellow workers
- Put your worst foot forward
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment still has good advice and tips for helping people find a job. No cartoons, but plenty of good resources. Visit their “Find a Job” page for tips on resume writing, interviewing and job searching.
