The #1 Warning Sign You’re About to Get Fired

Share

shutterstock_160228955Admit it… you don’t like your job.

You didn’t mean to take the first thing you got offered. But you did. Turns out it’s worse than you thought it would be. You don’t like the company, your boss, or most of your co-workers.

You can’t believe this is your life now. You have this dreary, I-do-nothing-important job that grinds you down every day.

Maybe you could earn as much going freelance. Consult. Maybe coach?

But you can’t help worrying….

Should you try to find something else full time, rather than risk leaving now and going out on your own?

Should you go back to school or get some kind of certification?

Should you just grit your teeth, be patient and wait for recruiters or clients to find you?

One thing for sure. You can’t stand this job much longer.

There you have it! The number one warning sign you are about to get fired is how you feel about your job.

Don’t think you are fooling anyone. And, don’t get fooled yourself.

Every client I’ve seen who’s been fired, spent at least six months – sometimes six years – hating the job they were in. And they thought no one knew. They thought the boss wasn’t paying attention.

Then they got fired. Funny thing is – they were SURPRISED! Angry! Bitter!

And really, really scared.

Losing your job is a very scary thing. And if you hated your job, you feel really strange. After all, what could be better than losing something you hate? Keeping it?

It’s time to start thinking about what you really want to do. And where you really want to work. Maybe you really do want to work for yourself. Maybe you really can be a successful freelancer, coach or consultant.

Then it’s time to spruce up your LinkedIn summary. In fact, you may need to make some radical changes in the way you present yourself on LinkedIn and on social media sites.

Just make sure your privacy settings block your network from knowing you are making changes. If not, everyone will know what you are doing – before you are ready to announce it.

WARNING: Messages from ‘Facebook Recovery’ Are Scams

Share

Facebook users: If you receive messages from an account titled “Facebook recovery,” report them at once and do not follow the directions. They are part of a scam.

Jovi Umawing of Malwarebytes Labs provided details in a blog post, saying that victims are directed to a payment page, where their credit-card information is requested.

The scam message reads (unedited):

Notification: Your Account will be Disabled!

Account FACEBOOK you have already been reported by others about the abuse of account, this is a violation of our agreement and may result in your account is disabled. Please verify your email account to unblock and help us do more for security and convenience for everyone.

Immediately do recover your Facebook account, by clicking on the link below:

“Attention”

If you ignore this message, we can not recover your account and your account will be permanently disabled.

Sorry to interrupt your convenience.

Umawing added in his blog post:

Once a user entered the credentials that were requested and clicked “Log In,” data is posted to recovery.php, and then users are redirected to this payment page, which asks for his/her full name, credit-card details and billing address.

We have no idea why all of a sudden the account that claims to be a legitimate entity from Facebook is asking for a form of monetary compensation for the recovery of accounts. Perhaps that is what the phishers meant when they said, “help us do more for security and convenience for everyone.”

If you see posts on your feed that appear similar to the Facebook post we discussed here, whether it continues to bear the same URL or not, it’s best to ignore it and warn your network about an ongoing spam campaign.
