6. You can do the job you were hired for. You probably think this is the proverbial “no-brainer.” It’s not. You would be amazed at how many employees either do not or cannot do the job they were hired for. The job may be beyond their skills and abilities or it may turn out to be very different than what they thought they were getting into. Either way, that is probably not the boss’s fault and he shouldn’t be penalized for it. The boss has a job that needs doing and your job is to do it. If you have trouble, get help. If you don’t like it, either change attitudes or change jobs. But in the meantime, do your job exactly how and when you were asked to do it, and your boss will love you for it.
