"YOU ARE FIRED!"
The three coal-en (opposite of gold is coal) words.
I came across this interesting article. Read on.
There are two types of employee. One has a good idea of what they do, who they are and what position they play in the company. They are savvy. They know the score. They are under no delusions, and will no doubt leave for another job long before they are ever considered as cannon-fodder.
And then there’s the other kind. The guy who could get Gandhi to hate him. The woman who spends most of her day chatting on the phone to friends or doing online shopping. Or the nice chap in sales who is completely oblivious that the recent merger means his job is now obsolete. They all have Ostrich Syndrome. They couldn’t see a pink slip coming if it was 8ft tall and glowing in the dark, screaming “you’re fired!”
You want to avoid being in that 2nd category at all costs. So here is a a handy list. If you can answer yes to THREE or more of these questions, you may want to think about sprucing up your resume and dry-cleaning your best interview attire.
1 – Are you no longer in the loop about, well, anything?
2 - Did you recently screw up big-time?
3 – Are people avoiding you at all costs?
4 – Did your last performance review read like a train wreck?
5 – Has your company recently been sold or merged?
6 – Are you being given impossible jobs with no chance of success?
7 – Do you now have less responsibility than the intern?
8 – Has your office, cubicle or working space recently been down-sized?
9 – Do people whisper more, or does the conversation change as you approach?
10 – Did your recently receive a pay freeze or, worse still, a pay cut?
11 – Have you seen a job posting for your company that matches your job description?
12 – Does everyone hate you? I mean really dislike you with a passion?
13 – Have you recently been asked to take some time off?
14 – Are you noticing paper-trails between yourself and your superiors?
15 – Are you finding it almost impossible to get approval or ‘buy in’ on projects?
16 – Have you recently been asked to work on a “special project?”
17 – Are your successes and accomplishments being glossed over?
18 – Are you currently being ‘retrained’ or are taking coaching sessions?
19 – Has your immediate boss or mentor gone bye-bye?
20 – Have you recently been promoted to a position of less responsibility?
Remember, THREE or more and you’re more than likely heading for the unemployment line. Take a long hard look at your working life, and do something about it. After all, if you’re not good enough for them, then they’re not good enough for you.

I was sent this link by my boss. And trust me this is funny! This is an article about Infosys and its cost cutting measures. Read on!
Cut that break
Business Standard / New Delhi February 11, 2009, 0:59 IST
Cutting costs are vital in these tough times, especially for an IT industry which is witnessing the brunt of the OECD recession. One of the many things IT major Infosys is doing is to encourage staffers not to stay on beyond 7 pm to complete project deadlines. So, staffers won’t be allowed to take a toilet break after 7 pm! To help them in this process, there will be no drinking water available after 4.30 pm, keeping in mind the fact that what goes in must go out. Infosys started implementing this new cost-cutting measure on Thursday, according to sources. It has also pasted advisories next to the elevators “encouraging” employees to take the stairs, “for better health”.
The article was abviously funny but more than that what amused me were the comments! Just read the selected few-

This is where your "source" will be pointing at his monitor and laughing. He must be thinking, "Finally someone dumb enough to believe the rubbish I feed them". With this, business-standard has comprehensively entered the elite ultra "sub-standard" group of media entities that lack the common sense to atleast verify the authenticity of such ridiculous news stories.

Google has launched Offline Gmail that enables Gmail users to read and compose messages even if they do not have an active internet connection. The messages sent while offline would be placed in the Outbox and automatically sent the next time you connect to internet. This is a feature under Google labs and is still in beta.
This is same as using Gmail on mobile. Once you have downloaded Gmail on your mobile phone, you can read and compose msges in your mobile phone without the internet connection. Its like the Outlook of your PC. It stores the received or already downloaded messages in your system - PC, Mobile whatever. Though the drafts saved on mobile are not available when you log in via your PC. Its only available in your mobile. :(
To use offline Gmail feature, one needs to click Settings and click the Labs tab; then select Enable next to Offline Gmail and finally click Save Changes. After the browser reloads, a new ‘Offline0.1’ link would be visible in the upper right hand corner of the Gmail page. On clicking this link the offline set up process will get started. This will download all the mails till date in your Gmail inbox (including sent and trash). Then when you click on Gmail icon on your desktop, your Gmail inbox will open in your PC. However this requires Google Gears on your system which it will detect automatically and ask you to install.
All said and done, Gmail is introducing great features, specially in labs. The recently launched themes are a big hit. There was a time when personal Email Id meant hotmail or Yahoo ID but now its Gmail! "Can I have your Gmail Id please...?" is the question I get to hear when my outlook cant receive a file more than 4 MB. So if you don’t have a Gmail ID dont remain alien to the world of emailing and more, go get one!
