Should I apply elsewhere for a NQ role?

I have found out there is a very small chance of a NQ role in my preferred department at my law firm – should I just apply elsewhere, or stay in a different department?

I am doing a training contract at a mid-sized City law firm. I am due to qualify in March 2011, but the September newly qualifyed roles announced last month has made me realise it may be very unlikely that there will be a job in the area (litigation) that I’m most interested in! I have really enjoyed my training contract, and feel I fit into the culture nicely. But I can’t really see myself doing anything else – should I just look for a NQ role elsewhere?
