    Hi,

    So I am a business graduate looking to get into a business project type role

    however, Ive been invited to an interview for an admin job for HM Courts & Tribunals..

    I was wondering if I should even go to it? as its not in the field i am trying to get into..

    I think there are a few aspects to this:
    How badly do you need a job and can you afford to keep looking? Do you have other options in the pipeline?
    Have you had much interview practise? If nothing else this can serve as practise.

    You don't really have a decision to make until you have 2 job offers. if this job might be better, follow it through until you get an offer, or don't.
