* Discovering the different uses of E-mail in a business’ day-to-day activities. * To investigate how important this service is.

Functions Of The Department Selected
Two functions of the Communication Department are:
* Sending out data via any available medium.
* Receiving, sorting and conveying data to the Records Department.

Dear Sirs
I am a Hydel High School student currently doing a selection of business subjects. With these I hope to pursue a career in the business field. I have a request of your firm. I am seeking permission to conduct research on your firm. My research topic is “The Use of Electronic mail”. I have visited this ministry and have seen how the staff use E-mail for different purposes. If accepted, the activities which I will do will have no effect on the staff. I will note different activities of the Communication Division for three (3) days and will also distribute questionnaires to gather further information for my research. I await your reply. Thank you.

Yours faithfully

Methodology
I decided to incorporate questionnaires and interviews.

Reason For Selecting This Instrument
I decided to incorporate both interviews and questionnaires. This is because they were the two most suitable options. If I were to utilize observations employees would feel a sense of nervosity with me watching over them. Another option was secondary sources, this would not disturb anyone, however, there would be uncertainty due to the fact that I did not obtain the information firsthand.

How Instrument Was Provided
I printed thirteen (13) questionnaires as there were fifteen (15) internet oriented employees in the Communication Department. There names were placed in a box where only thirteen would be drawn to ensure I recollected at least ten (10). The names were drawn while the box was being shaken. I found the selected employees and handed them copies. After this I asked all these persons some questions during an interview. The following specimen shows five (5) of my twenty (20) questions from my questionnaire used for data collection.
