How to Make Your Boss Adore You and Keep Your Job by Dave Donovan

With unemployment still on the rise, making sure your boss needs you is every employee's most important survival skill right now. In Washington, the country's top financial analysts are claiming the recession is just about over. But, look around your neighborhood -- or for more icy cold confirmation, at the Bureau of Labor's unemployment statistics -- and you'll have your worst fears confirmed.
