In this economy, it's more important than ever to make sure you keep your job.

We can help you do that by steering you away from things that will most likely get you fired.

Here are a few of them:

  • Lying on your resume – Everyone exaggerates here and there, but if you straight up LIE, you will get caught.
  • Taking too many personal calls – When you're at work, you can't treat your cubicle like the living room of the kids you're babysitting. You're being paid to work, not call your grandma.
  • Drinking – It's one thing to order a beer when you're at a client lunch, but it's another to go full on "Mad Men" at the office.
  • Never taking responsibility – If you're constantly pointing the finger at your co-workers every time something goes wrong, you'll look like a liar and a person who is afraid to own up to mistakes. (Monster)
