    You can always find for an other job, it's easier when you have one already and you have now the experience necessary to go and get a better job.

    I just don't think I have that much expierence though. All I have done is been at college for 2 years and got my HND in Business Administration and then I have worked 6 weeks in a sherriff court as an admin assistant and now about 6 months in this job. I don't think its very much expierence for this field of work.

    Well then maybe just stay for an other 6 months to get a year of experience and go look for someone else. Unless it is that horrid working over there?

    Its not that bad working here but its just that they won't let me progess in the ways i want to. I am just seen as the person who goes and does all the photcopying and rubbish stuff like that.

    everyone has to start off somewhere though, don't they. most of the top people you work with will have started off making cups of tea and coffee.

    Have you tried discussing it with them?

    Telling them that when you were employed you were promessed or thinking of progressing within the company, but after 6 months you are still assign boring tasks. Sometimes they are receptive and going to them and talk about it will show your wish to do more for the business. All will depends who you are going to dicuss it with tho.

    Hope for the best and prepare for the worse.

    What the worse that could happend.

    They keep you as a junior. Don't think their attitude toward you would change, it is no big deal. Unless they are cunts you are dealing with here.

    And best case they will make you do more intesresting things.

    Just wait for the answer and see.

    And don't be scare to ask some time to think about it if they offer anything or ask you any question regarding your employment. Sometimes answering in a rush is not good. They will not be upset if you need 10 mins to thing about your career.
