    Basically I have an interview this week for an office junior job, but I'm not sure whether I really want the job or not.

    Is it more of a girl's job because I'm a guy! Also it is only 10.5k a year which is Ok but not great. Not sure what to do though, I'm off to uni in september (hopefully) and all I need is a job to tie me up until then not a job which I will be in forever.

    Advice please

    Yes it is.

    But what are you expecting? Just bend over until September like the rest of us.

    You wanna explain the logic behind that or are you just being sexist?

    The OP said it, by which I read a weak job, which it is. I didn't say it was a job for girls, thats very different. That would be midwifery.

    What really defines a 'girl's job'? Are men not capable of doing the office job and therefore it is reserved for women only? It's like saying there should not be any male nurses or midwives, though there are plenty about!

    Lol, to be fair - I think I'm just being stupid about it and trying to find excuses not to take a job, looking at any little negative thing.

    Office job is not ideal for me but I suppose money is money and it will be only for 8 months or so.

    Don't be silly. There's no such thing as a 'girl's job' - this isn't the 1950s you know. If you need the money, take it. I doubt it'll be too challenging.

    A girl's job? Wow...

    You'll be working in an office, not a dress-modeling shop.

    by a girl's job do you mean

    A) A job usually performed/only suitable for women? (which I don't understand how this job could be considered a girl's job then really).
    or
    B) A job where in order to keep the job you must flirt/be romantically involved with your boss. In this situation your boss is male (and straight) hence your flirting with him will be in vain and he will fire you from this high paid, dream job for a female which he deems attractive?

    If it is the latter, B), I sympathise with you

    Presumably he's labelling it as a 'girl's job' due to its low pay and status. No doubt he expected his first job out of school to be as CEO of a multinational corporation, what with him having a penis and all.

    Well.. if it is a 'girl's job, then there might be tons of girls there as your co-workers. I don't see the problem?
