Question: “A good friend was fired recently for sexual harassment. He did pat a woman on her bottom, and she told him she was offended and he apologized. She filed a complaint and the company fired him. Does he need to disclose that he was fired and why he was fired? The company will not disclose the information, it only verifies employment. How does he answer the question, “Why did you leave your last job?” on an application or in an interview?” — Melodie

Question: “Occasionally in Excel, I have a table open but it isn’t visible. I know the table is open because the name bar tells me it is in cell A1, etc., and the formula bar tells me what is in that cell, but the screen is completely gray. You cannot see the table. I can move from cell to cell with my arrow keys, but I cannot see the table or cells on the screen. The only way to view the table is in full screen mode, which doesn’t have the task bars available. Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?” — Diana

Question:“I work with a group of people who always want to know what I’m working on, what I’m doing, what I’m looking at, who I’m talking to, who that email is from, etc.  I am the only administrative assistant in our hospital department. They think I’m just here to answer the phone so what else could I possibly be doing?  I have tried to educate the staff on all my various roles and duties, but they still don’t get it.  Whenever they ask me about something that is confidential and I tell them so, they look at me like I must really think I’m special because I can’t tell them what I’m working on.  Frankly, I would just like to do my work without having to answer to multiple people on what my every move is. How do I handle inquisitive co-workers? ” — Anonymous
