    Hey guys,

    I've recently started work at a law firm as an office assistant; minimum wage, basic office duties. Its actually a very fun job but a monkey could do it! I've been offered a role into accounts, this makes sense for me as i plan on taking a business degree with the open uni so makes sense to move into a more business orientated role. The only problem i have is that the accounts department is unbelievably boring. Its best for my career to take the accounts position, but for my sanity...

    Do you guys have any experience on moving up in your job to roles you weren't too sure about? how did it work out? The best decision would be to take the job, i think i will but there's just that niggle in the back of my head telling me to think it through!

    Thanks!

    If you find accounts so boring do you want to take a business degree? Learning to manage boredom is a useful skill for any future career.
