secretary questions!! :O

if you are or have been working as a secretary and you don't mind spending 10-15 minutes on this, i'll be super extra glad. i'm doing a bit of research re: asking the national unemployment office to pay for job training maybe and i have to prove that i know what the job entails first. they don't like to pay for training that's not used afterwards, which is fairly sensible of them really XD;;

i only need four or five people to do this so don't feel obligated if it's hard or tiring for you, i'll be okay. and if you can't answer all the questions that's also cool, this is supposed to be used for physical jobs too so some of that stuff is Does Not Apply, and some of them are redundant or unclear AND some are asking about french-market-specific stuff so heyyy whatev'. this isn't a scientific survey :p

there are 14 questions! :O and the answers can be one-liners or even one-worders, that's cool.

edit: i've got enough replis now! thank you guys, you were awesome. ^^
