Would this payroll job help me get the position I want in the future?

I've been working at this payroll company for almost half a year and I still have half a year left until I get my degree in Finance. I'll be applying for a financial analyst job next year after graduating. I've gotten other job offers, but they were all located too far. I'm helping the CEO with many tasks.

I really need some advice!
