My company just shortened the work week because of the gas prices. I now work one day a week from home, which is fine with me. Up until now, I've just had a pretty old Dell laptop, which is not going to be a good substitute for my PC at work. I need to buy a new PC, and I am totally confused about what all the features mean and how much to spend. I don't need graphics or do much gaming. It's mostly for Microsoft Office. What are some features I should be looking for?

I'm being recruited by a consulting company that is doing work at my current company. Is it ethical to recruit from a current client? I know I need to look out for #1 but should I be worried about what might happen down the road?

I am going to get my graduate degree in June 09. The Career Center where I go to school offers a lot of help. One thing that I am freaking out about are these networking coffees and after work mixers they sponsor with hiring managers and recruiters. Not only am I weirded out about going up to a complete stranger and introducing myself, I also just freeze up when someone tries to just make "small talk" with me. Any suggestions for me?

I have a mid level clerical job at a bank, which is stable but offers not too much in the way of advancement. I have a B.A. in history and I was thinking of returning to school to get an MBA. Is it reasonable to ask the bank whether they would pay for me to pursue such a degree or would I be rocking the boat too much by asking/

I always hear from women's business groups how women are supposed to stick together and support and encourage each other. That's not the case at my job. It is just the opposite. The women are the worst at gossiping about other women, go to a manager if a woman co-worker makes an error, and also take credit for the work of other women so that they can't get ahead. If I try to change what is happening, it makes it worse for me. I need some advice on what to do about really bad women at work.

I have a job that I don't hate. I don't love it either. I've spent so many years doing things that I don't hate, if somebody asked me what I love to do, I don't think I could tell them. I'm tired of this and want to wake up in the morning excited to go to work. How do I start?

My husband has been offered a transfer to another city, over 1800 miles away. I've just re-established myself in the workforce, and have a good job. I will be earning half the income we bring in. Tonight we had a huge fight and he told me that if I can't see how the move will help his career, he will relocate without me. The conversation was angry and is not over. I know it signals the end of our marriage. I feel like there has to be some kind of compromise, but I am talking to a stone.

I have been working for a new boss after my company was acquired. He gives me assignments, which I work hard to complete on time and without errors. The problem is that when I turn in the work, he sends it back, with comments that he didn't ask for the results in this way, wants another report, or whatever. Nothing I do is right, even though I follow instructions. I think he is trying to make me quit so he can bring in someone else. I can't afford to get fired, and I need some help.
