Love your job? Then save it!

Love your job? Then save it!

DO volunteer for more work.
Companies are making cuts, so someone needs to pick up the extra work. Do it with a smile, and you're a dream employee.

DO arrive early and stay late.
This is obvious and no longer optional. Make your commitment visible by pulling long hours. Also, lay off the text messaging or personal calls during business hours. 

DON'T telecommute. "[Bosses] tend to fire people they don't like or don't know," says Stephen Viscusi, author of "Bulletproof Your Job." Working from home or part-time makes it harder for your boss to know you, so avoid it if you can.
