Admin graduates 'bored at work'

03-08-2006

Administration is the most boring career for graduates, according to a new survey.

Half of all graduates in a range of careers are bored at work and half of those who are bored have considered changing their profession in the past year, a poll from the Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) found.

Admin workers topped the list of bored workers, while those working in manufacturing, sales and marketing were similarly fed up.

Respondents said that they were bored due to the lack of challenge in their jobs (61 per cent), not using their skills enough (60 per cent) and doing the same thing every day (50 per cent).

Teachers were found to be the least bored professionals, with 81 per cent saying that they enjoyed the challenge of teaching and 86 per cent saying that they enjoyed the interaction with people.

Of the bored employees who said that they have considered changing their profession in the past year, teaching was the most popular choice, with 12 per cent identifying it as a favourite option for their next career.
