Q. I complete my tasks satisfactorily within the official working hours, meaning that by the time the clock ticks 5pm, I am ready to leave the office. My colleagues, however, work late most of the time, forcing me to hang around the office for an extra hour just in case my boss thinks that I don’t work hard enough. Do I have to work overtime to get ahead in my career?
