1.6 Over to you You are the Communications Officer in your company. One of your responsibilities is to ensure that all staff receive clear, straightforward information about what’s happening in the company. One of the junior colleagues in the Communications Team has drafted the email below about plans to change the telephone numbering system. Read the email, then edit it so that it communicates the key information more clearly. You can write it on the next page, or type it. To: All Staff Subject: Please be informed that telephone numbers will change. Dear all, Please be informed that as the telephone numbering range the company has been using, i.e. 2801-xxxx where xxxx represents the 4-digit extension numbers starting with 2, 3,4,5,7 or 8 since around 1998, has almost been used up, we will start using the new telephone numbering range of 3911- yyyy where yyyy represents the 4-digit extension numbers starting with 2, 3 or 8, from April 1 st . In other words, for extension numbers starting with 2, 3 or 8, the telephone numbers will be 3911 followed by the extension numbers.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
