Staying in employment

I just posted this as a reply to another thread but I'm putting it as a post because I've been struggling with this since coming off meds and my husband has been trying to get me to understand this for ages and it's only now that I get it.

As someone who has been fired from every job I've ever had except this one I've learned that the best way to stay safe is to have a good attitude. Managers are far more tolerant of mistakes from someone who tries and shows they care than of someone who doesn't.

Re: Staying in employment

I agree. I have always been told that I am a hard worker, team player and always have a good attitude. I may lack in Attention to detail or it takes me more than a couple times to figure something out but I do and I also own up when I do make a mistake. Those are assets in themselves.
