Dear Aspirant,

Thanks for approaching us at CareerGuide.com!!!

Finance & Accounts are majorly desk jobs and therefore confining to office spaces and cubicles is the characteristic of this domain.

However whether it is too boring or not depends entirely on the attitude with which a person chooses to be in the finance domain. If a person does not like sitting in a place for long hours, then they are not meant for these jobs.

Best wishes!

Hi There,

Thanks for choosing CareerGuide.com!!!

As the two counselors above have mentioned clearly the job role one would perform being in the financial domain and as Dr Anand Wadadekar has said that it totally depends on the personality of the person.

Aslo I just would like to add that, based on your potentials and interests you would like to deal with Finances and related matters which requires you to be in your cubicle.
But one may also have a social aspect to their personality.And would like to be along with people and fellow colleagues.

So during work, you are confined to your work station, but at other times like say lunch time or refreshment time, you mingle up with colleagues, which would make work life interesting.
And the other thing is that if you like what you do, work would never ever be boring.

Wish you good luck........
