I am currently working as an accountant, a permanent job. But I am not enjoying it that much. There is an offer for a position I like but it is an internship for a finance position.

I am working in a pretty well-known "International" company as a junior graphic designer under a very demanding, controlling, yet less knowledgeable head of department. She always find ways or reasons to pick on me somehow giving me the most challenging things to do.

When I excel at it, I will get even harder tasks but when I fail, she will point it out and make it into a very big issue. It c
I applied for a job as a marketing executive and got in but after these past 5 months, I don't know it's because I am incompetent or I cannot keep up with the office culture. What should I do? Should I quit and find something else or should I try out for a couple months more then only decide my next step?
