Reyer: For new spot at workplace, take action

QI've told my employer that I'd like to leave my current position within 12 months, and that I'd like to find a position in a different department doing a different kind of work.

Reyer: Is employer really trying to toss him under the bus?

QMy boss has been making me look bad in front of his boss. He'll tell me to work on certain high-priority projects, and then when his boss asks him the status of a lower-priority project, asks me if I've done it yet. How can I handle this without rocking the boat too much?
