I have been set 2 tests namely:
The first is simple but a skill that is not held by everyone, being your ability to compose and write in a clear and readable manner. This isn’t essential but small biz need all the talents we can get.The second task is analysis.
(this has been C&P'd from his email)
Now, I was looking for something that would show ability to compose etc, and suddenly remembered and exercise that we did at school. We had to provide written instructions on how to do a reasonably simple task, with no diagrams. I choose "how to put up a deck chair"
I have written this :^Begin by laying the deck chair flat on the ground. You will notice that it comprises three sections. The middle section has fabric that goes the length of the frame and is secured at both ends. The other two sections join onto the fabric covered section and are not fixed in an immovable way, but can be rotated around the bolts that join them to it.
Of the two sections that do not have fabric, you will see that one section is approximately the same size as the middle section, and has a plain, smooth finish. The shorter section has notches or grooves along both lateral sides of it. These notches must be uppermost.
Take hold of the centre of the fabric covered section at the end nearest to the plain one, and lift it upwards. As you do this, allow the notched section to lie flat on the ground. With your other hand, guide the end of the plain section until it rests on the notched section, and ensure that it is resting firmly on notches that are parallel to each other.
You can further raise or recline the deck chair by placing the bar of the plain section on notches higher or lower than those initially selected.^
I will also send him something that I have previously posted on here, but probably NOT any of the underwear related things, or falling in the wheelie bin for that matter
Do you think that you could put up a deck chair following those instructions, even if you had never done so before?
Thanks in advance!
