    Hello..

    Friend if its your first time that you are failed to complete a target in time then two things may happen , one is if that project is very important then your boss will be very angry and yes you are going to see some downside in your job and second thing that you can also have the favor of this thing "first time". If it is your first time you may be given something less as a punishment. But one thing I can say that it will effect you job in any case , because records matters a lot and if you are not completing your target in given time then it will create a bad impact of you on your boss , so try to cut out this from your job life and complete your target in time , I know it is hard but the result will be very sweet.

    thanks.

    Hello Aspirant,

    There are so many situations & problems to be faced by human beings.You should have dare to face the situations.You must prepare well to complete your assignments in time as every thing is linked to other in professional career & even in general life.Of course it happens some times that works are not completed in time.

    You should say sorry to your boss for not completing your work in time & assure of doing in future.As you might be knowing that unsuccess is a path for success in life.One unsuccess does not mean badly affecting the job.

    Even if it happens you can do only to get another good job.But it may not be done so,because being first mistake ,it is excused easily.But be attentive & cautious to do your work in time.Acquire enough knowledge,possess good health to have stamina for hard working.

    Good luck.

    Dear,
    It it is not good that you have not completed the task on time,surely it will attracted some kind of punishment to you.
    As you said that it was an important task and are not able to complete it on time, hence it may cause serious effect no your job.
    The best method to come out from such a problem is to ask sorry from your boss,or ask him to take some alternative from you. This will prevent you from being expelled from the job.

    Best of luck to you, i will wish that your boss will not take serious steps against you.

    Hi aspirant

    You should definitely be careful to complete your tasks on time. In this way you are going to upset your boss which will definitely not be good for your future in this company. As this is the first time that you have failed at your task, so it doesn't matter much and you surely would be given another chance to prove your mettle. You should go and apologize to your boss and tell him that you will make it sure that this will not happen the next time.

    You should work hard and with full dedication. If you give your 100% to your work then there is no reason that your boss will say anything to you or that you will not be able to complete your work. You will surely be able to complete your future tasks on time if you give your all to your work. I am sure that you have the capability to outdo yourself but what you need is the confidence. So be confident of yourself and then everything will be alright.

    Good luck and thanks

    First of all you must not need to think such things as this is the problem of management, it is not necessary that due to your failure you can be sacked.

    Though it depends on the management what they think about you and your fitness as an employee in the company.

    You should not waste your time in thinking such things instead must work hard to improve your weakness, which was the main cause behind your failure.

    Don't think any thing by yourself if your mistake is big enough and the management finds that you are not eligible for job they will automatically inform

    you, as it is possibly the first time you did such mistake than you can also be given another chance to improve yourself.

    So think on it much and just concentrate on your work to improve your performance as this is the only way by which you can cover up this failure and

    thus can gain back your image as a good employee.

    Hi,

    It is common that every one can't complete their job within time....don't be afraid....just concentrate your current assignments....It should be taken as a lesson for the future assignment....

    First try to figure it out the route cause for the non-completion of assignment in time.... you will get your answer... however it will not impact your job in any way....Bosses are well known about the issues....it might be happen in future also... but don't be afraid....up's and down is the part of job assignment... everybody is not perfect....

    Hello,

    No, one failure will not coat your job but if you continue perform this way then
    I am afraid you will loose your job. In a professional environment you need to
    complete you work within a stipulated time frame. You should have completed
    the work within the time so next time onwards you should be very careful while
    doing your work. No matter what happens you need to finish your given task.

    Bye,

    Hello,

    This is really a tough situation for you.You have been given an important responsibility.Since you could not finish it up within the stipulated time,your boss will be putting pressure on you.If your previous performances have been satisfactory,then they might overlook your mistake this time by only giving you a strong warning.Otherwise they will if they decide to take any drastic action,they will fire you.

    Your failure to complete the task in the time would cost your job or not depends upon the decision of senior management. If it's the first time then you will be given second chance definately. If the project provided you important and due to your failure in completion of time then some action will definately taken. If you continue your mistake in the near future then you will definately terminated from the job. It will definately affect your image in the company and you need to improve it by providing good work to the company.

    Close friend whether it is a time that you are did not finish a targeted over time then 2 things may occur , one is if that venture is essential in that case your manager will be very indignant and yes you are going to see quite a few down side within your task and 2nd element that you can likewise contain the benefit associated with it "brand new ".If perhaps it is a personal brand new you may be granted some thing a smaller amount as being a punishment. But one element I actually can tell that it'll consequence you actually employment in any case , for the reason that documents makes a difference a great deal and if you are never completing your targeted within time then it'll make an unsatisfactory impression associated with your body on its manager , thus make an effort to cut down on the following via your task daily life and finish your targeted over time , Yes, it is difficult although the actual result will be very sweet.

    There are lots of conditions & troubles to generally be confronted by people beings.You should have challenge to take care of a situations.You should create very well to perform your projects over time because all the things is linked to within specialized job & even just in basic life.Of training it occurs some times that actually works are certainly not carried out in time.

    It is best to point out apologies to the manager because of not completing your task over time & promise of performing within future.As you might be understanding that unsuccess is usually a way for achievement within life.One unsuccess is not to mean horribly having an effect on a job.

    Although it occurs you can do merely to have one other good job.But them will not be complied,for the reason that remaining 1st oversight ,it's forgiven easily.But often be mindful & careful to accomplish your task within time.Acquire ample information,own a healthy body to acquire strength with regard to tough working.
    You must be certain you full your tasks on time.

    In this manner you are going to upset your coworkers which will not do great on your potential during this company. As this is initially that you have unsuccessful during your task, thus no matter considerably and you simply undoubtedly would certainly get a further an opportunity to demonstrate your mettle. An individual runs plus i am sorry to the manager plus be sure he understands in which you'll make them positive it will not happen our next time.

    It is best to work tirelessly with 100 % dedication. If perhaps you allow your 100% to your task then there is no reason at all that your particular manager will certainly point out whatever to your account or maybe for you to will not be able to perform your work. You will certainly be capable of full your potential tasks when they're due in the event you allow your just about all to the work. I am sure in which there is a power to best on your own although the thing you need may be the confidence. And so rest assured associated with on your own and after that all will likely be alright.
