5. Make Yourself Indispensable

If your employer can’t bear the thought of losing you, you won’t get the axe no matter how many jobs they cut. Becoming indispensable means being the “go-to guy” (or gal) when it comes to your field, making yourself available to superiors and peers, and going beyond your job description. You don’t have to be a slave to your job to become indispensable, but you do need to stand out from the crowd.

If you find that your co-workers come to you with questions, your supervisor trusts you with important projects or research, and you typically get what you ask for, you are probably an indispensable part of your facility. Count your lucky stars.
