If you have a job right now, chances are you have coworkers. You also most likely don't get to choose your coworkers, although you probably wish you could sometimes. The easiest way to make your work a place you look forward to going is liking the people you work with. Making friends with your coworkers will also help you move up in your company, as well as keep you out of trouble at work. You may also find that your coworkers are a bunch of really cool people. I'm going to give you a few tips on how to get these friendships going.

One of the easiest things to do is compliment your coworkers. Try and find something nice to say about them, whether it's about their hairstyle, how neat their desk is, or the way they handled a particualr situation. Even if there is nothing obvious to comment on, say something about the last time you saw them ("That shirt you were wearing looked really nice on you.") or even the next time you see them ("I hope I see you tomorrow. It's always so nice working with you!")

Another easy thing to do is thank the person. Whenever someone does something for you, whether it was out of the kindness of their hearts or something they only do because they get paid to, thank them for it. Everyone loves to be acknowledged for doing something, and always saying thank you will make you memorable.

If you're feeling especially generous, and you have a little bit of extra time and money, consider bringing in food. Homemade chocolate chip cookies go a long way in making people like you. Just make sure you try to bring a variety of things, so you won't have to worry too much about dislikes and allergies. And always bring enough for everyone! You'll only end up making enemies if everyone hears all about the delicious cake you brought and comes over to the empty pan.

These are just a few of the ways to make friends at work. If you try and make friends with all of the people you work with, you will find yourself happier and enjoying work a lot more.
