If you feel like your boss no longer wants you around, you could be right. There’s nothing worse than losing your job and not seeing it coming. If you don’t want losing your job to come as a surprise, here are some warning signs that your boss is ready for you to go…
They don’t want you to succeed: Did you just do something awesome? Did you finish an amazing project or finalize a big sale? Most bosses would be ecstatic about that. If your boss seems annoyed or irritated, it may be because he doesn’t like that you’re not giving him any reason to let you go.
They talk about you behind your back: It’s not professional to complain about someone behind their back. If you find out from your coworkers that your boss is doing this, it’s definitely a bad sign.
They start analyzing everything you do: The best bosses don’t micromanage, so if your boss suddenly starts to do that, they might be looking for a reason to let you go. If you’re also receiving constructive feedback, they might just be trying to help you improve. But if not, they’re probably trying to find a reason to justify your dismissal.
They start giving you all the worst assignments: By giving you horrible assignments, your boss could be trying to wear you down. Either you’ll get distraught and quit or your work quality will suffer and they’ll have a reason to let you go. Either way, constantly giving you the worst projects might be their way of driving you out.
