I just started a job at a finance leadership program at a Fortune 500 company. The program is extremely well known is 2 years long and is on the path to become an executive at this pretisgious company. I joined right after school ended (4 days) and never really had a strong inclination to go into finance. I knew that from the begining, while I know I do not want to stay there long-term as I am likley leaving after 2 years, I'd love to hear thoughts on whether I should leave the company now.

The job is extremley stressful (not in a fun way), and the work while not necessarily boring, is not interesting to me what so ever. I always wanted to try sales, but this job came up after I graduated so I took it without really thinking. There are pros and cons. There is no substitute for hard work ive only been there for 4 months and I realize having 2 years at this company and graduating from this program would look great on my resume. I also realize that no job is fun all the time (the grass is greener on the other side). I could always try to move into sales after I finish this program, but the question that bugs me is: why not just look for a sales jobs now then if that is the case as I know I likley will not stay in finance??? I have no contacts as well or other jobs readilly availible so quiting now would not make sense ... but should I nip this thought in the bud or explore further
