Dear Lifehacker, What should I do when a co-worker continually copies all their managers in all email communications? It comes off as though they are trying to make me seem bad in front of the bosses because they ignore what I have told them in person and ask question after question that I have already answered.

Hi Lifehacker, I’m currently completing my university studies and I’ll want to apply for some graduate opportunities, either mid-year or next year. The thing is, I don’t actually have any work experience relevant to the roles I’m looking at — all of my prior jobs were just to “pay the bills”, so to speak. While I have plenty of extra-curricular activities to note on my resume, the main issue is with referees.
