The idea that an employee will spend their entire career at one or two companies is outdated. Today it is likely that you will change jobs an average of eight to twelve times in your lifetime. But at the same time, you want that job change to be your decision-not as a result of being fired.
Too often, however, people don't look at the job they have now as an opportunity to learn and grow. They may feel stuck in a job they don't enjoy or that does not seem to have a future.
Over time, they develop a bad attitude or work habits that end up getting them fired-and they've lost that golden opportunity to build job skills, gain recommendations and create professional relationships that will help them throughout their careers.
This video helps students and job seekers avoid getting fired by teaching them about common work ethics: learning new skills, making valuable contacts, building positive recommendations, maintaining a good professional reputation, and more. Having a good work ethic puts people in the best position to move up in their current job, or obtain a new and better one. This video teaches people how to transform themselves into a desirable commodity and lay the foundation for a successful career.
