so, one of the jobs i applied to in september has finally gotten back to me. i had to write two exams for them in october, the same weekend as my great-aunt's funeral. now they want me to write another test via email. so i wrote them back to ask them what the topics being covered in test were and this is the response:
Please remember that the ability to communicate effectively in writing is one of the elements on which you will be evaluated.
Have a nice day
yeah, they are real helpful.
