if you don't let your boss know what you are doing or what you have done, he or she is apt to think you are slack off. but you tell he or she everything you are engaged in, you seem to be splurge or nagging. so how often should we let our bosses know the progress of the things we are taking?

My boss has an annualy rewiev with those on our floor and besides that I do not come to him that much unless I have a question about something or he adresses me about something.

I don't really have lots of ideas about telling bosses of what you are doing since I haven't tried to work at some company yet since I'm still studying. But I think if you are given a particular job/work , you should just let your boss know himself the progress of your work rather than you tell your boss what you are doing, what are your accomplishments and the progress of what you are doing. Since I think that you just want to be promoted if you keep on telling your boss what and how you're doing.. They are the boss. They know almost every thing about the company. The progress, workmanship of their employees, etc.. But in some cases like you have some problems, you can always consult your boss about it. :) That's just my opinion. ",) Best of luck to you!

thank you. but it seems that my boss know not everything but what he heard. and i don't like telling him every detail of my job which seems he liked.
