4 questions before...
Now we would like you to answer some questions about yourself and about your work. Some of them are a bit more personal than those you have been asked so far, so when you have finished this form you should put it in the envelope that will be given to you and stick it down. Read every question carefully. If you don't understand a question, or you are not sure what you have to do, ask the Youth Employment Officer.

What is your present job?
