    This might be stupid, but I am under the impression that office assistants are usually women. I am wondering about this, because I have just applied for an office assitant job, just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this role.

    Yes, there is a higher percentage of office assistants that are female, there's a higher percentage of teachers that are female, there's a higher percentage of male tech support people compared to females...

    However what does that have to do with anything? I've known and still know plenty of excellent male and female office workers, tech support, teachers, etc...

    I guess the question is "how do you feel about the job role?" For me, it wouldn't bother.

    Yeah it doesn't bother me either, I was just curious of opinions. End of the day it's a way for me to get my foot in the door of the IT world.

    Hi jake77

    I started my working life 20 years ago by being an office Junior, had to jobs like deliver post across to various departments, reception duties, franking post and even sending Telex!!!!! I showed a keen interest in IT and joined the small IT Department. Unfortunately got made redundant in the early 1990's and then decided to do a IT foundation course which then led on to a Computing Degree at Staffs Uni and have worked in IT ever since.

    So no its not a silly question, get your foot in the door and it can lead to better things.

    I had a short fling with one/two of the Office girls at the time too! :tune :lol:

    Thanks, thats what I'm hoping for, a chance to get the foot in the door. Experience is experience, although I am more keen on the flings you mentioned, haha.
