i need some help

I am a college student at the University of New Mexico. I was assigned a project to contact a professional in my field (business) and ask them a few questions about writing and communitcating.
The questions are as follows:

1) What kinds of documents or presentations do you have to produce?
2) How much time do you devote to communication on the job?
3)Do you have any advice on improving communication skills?

It would be very much appreciated if anyone would respond to these questions.
Thank you,
Natalie

Re: i need some help

Hi Natalie,

1) What kinds of documents or presentations do you have to produce? A: I will use Powerpoint to create presentation slides (anywhere from 1 to 50). Presentations range from training of support personnel, to new product proposals, to monthly updates. As well, written documents include software requirement documents for new projects, results of usability studies, and surveys.
2) How much time do you devote to communication on the job? Communication in the technology field is typically phone (meetings) and email. It probably consumes the better part of a workday, perhaps 60% -70% of the time.
3)Do you have any advice on improving communication skills? A: Obvious courses on speaking, writing, and keyboarding (typing). Of course, subject knowledge helps develop ideas.
