Million things to do at work ... how to keep track?

I have SO many things to do at my new job, and more things get added every day. I'm a pretty organized person in general but I feel like I have no time to even GET organized in this position. My current habits aren't helping, though. There's got to be a better way... Help! [more inside]

How to leave a job after a short time

I hope this will be my last job-related question for quite a while. I want to give two weeks' notice today or tomorrow at this job and I'm not sure how to go about it. [more inside]

Love writing but...

I've always had communications-related jobs, but they never seem to be the right fit. I'm a great writer (although I have a love/hate relationship with writing), but I also helping enjoy helping people and interacting with people, etc., and writing is a pretty solitary job. (Well, PR isn't, but that's one area I want to stay away from, as well as fundraising). Have any other writer-types who are like me found a solution? (Oh, and I don't want to take on grad-school loans right now.)

I need a time machine

A little more than a month ago, I started a full-time telecommuting job that I thought was my dream job. When I took it, I was working part-time (and had been since my son was born two years ago). This is my first full-time job since becoming a mom. I now think I made a big mistake. [more inside]

To work full time or not...

I currently work 20 hrs./week at a local nonprofit in field "XYZ." My husband works full time (8-6, usually), and we have a 2-year-old son who goes to my parents' house while I'm at work (3 days a week). However, yesterday I was contacted about a full-time job that's very appealing, and I don't know whether to pursue it. [more inside]

Help me wrap my brain around this

I currently work about 20 hours a week at my job while my parents watch my 18-month-old. Today I'm considering whether to apply for a full-time, telecommuting job -- it's kind of my dream job. (And yes, it's a legit work-at-home job with a national org!) Please help me decide! [more inside]

Not in the basement yet...

I got moved to a much smaller desk at work (I kinda feel like Milton) and now everything feels really crowded. How can I increase the empty space on my desktop? What can I move or rearrange? Is there any magical desk accessory that can help me? [more inside]

Am I in the wrong sort of job?

Has anyone "cured" a bad procrastination habit by taking a new job that has strict deadlines -- i.e., one that leaves you with really no way to procrastinate while managing to keep your job? [more inside]

Account coordinator - what's it like?

What's it like being an account coordinator at a PR firm? I've read some job profiles online, but I'd like to hear personal experiences. What's the day-to-day work like, and what sort of person would be good for the job? I see there's a past question that touches on being an account exec, but this is the rung below, right?
