Track your on-the-job accomplishments with this free download

If you want to prove your value to your company, keep track of your accomplishments throughout the year using this free downloadable spreadsheet.

I've written a lot over the past few weeks about things you can do to increase your chances of finding a job. But with the current economy, even if you already have a job, there may be a specter of insecurity over your head as to how stable that job is.

You've seen all the advice about how to make yourself indispensable on the job. It's good advice, but it can go further. In the corporate world where everyone speak in terms of the bottom line, it's a good idea to have physical documentation of your accomplishments.

In other words, what are you really worth to your company? This free TechRepublic download -- an accomplishments tracking spreadsheet -- can help you keep a record of all that you do throughout the year and how much company money is associated with each accomplishment.

Link seems to be back up now. I was just able to download it; in fact also verified that a link posted in a previous comment works now. Maybe TR needs to pay their hosting bill, or their server admins? :}
