If you get your apartment entirely due your job (e.g. you don't pay rent, but get it as property manager), you may be evicted as soon as you no longer work there. When you get the apartment only as part of your job, as soon as your job is over, so is your tenancy
If you get the apartment partially due to the job (pay less than market rent due to employment), then depending on what your lease (if any) or employment contract says, you may be able to stay if you start paying full rent--though you could still be evicted for any other valid reason (see below).
If you pay full rent for the unit and your job is not part of the "rent", then you can't be evicted just for losing your job, though you could be evicted like any other tenant (e.g. if you fail to pay rent, violate the terms of a lease, on 30 days notice if you are a month-to-month tenant, if you damage their property or are disorderly, etc.).
