What can I do about a boss who sends too many emails to constantly check up on the status of things? I work for several different people and feel that I manage my time wisely. If she would stop sending emails to check up on things every 5 minutes, I could get my work done. Help!

I have always been a hard working, dedicated employee. Lately I am really overwhelmed and feel like the company is taking advantage of me. Our group seems to get more work assigned than other groups in the same department and for me, I'm working long days and weekends (up to 60 hours) and sometimes even a few hours at home on other "days off". While this is going on I see others reading the newspaper and doing their nails. How can I push back on this unfair situation witout being a "whiner"?

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 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'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?

My mid-year performance review did not go so well - actually, it was quite poor. This is not the first time I've received a low rating over my three years at the firm. My manager said there are consistent themes that keep reoccuring. I feel I have been working very hard and do everything they ask of me, yet I'm unable to "crack the code" so to speak. Should I start looking for a new career or push harder for more supervision/support in my current role?

One of my co-workers is getting too close to me. She tries to hang with me all the time, and I keep receiving flowers and little gifts. She just says she is a generous person, but it is really too much. How can I tell her to stop and take a step back, without a problem? I have to work with her, and she sits in the same group as I do.

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 am getting harassed by my boss. He is making very clear remarks to me about wanting to go out, and what he can do for my career if I were to go out with him for dinner. I can only imagine what he would try if I was to go out. I am his Executive Assistant and I need a job to cover bills. I am so stressed out that I have trouble sleeping, and I hate to go to work. I know he will fire me if I don't give in. What can I do?

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?
