    English question

    A friend is applying for English Gardening course in England. It is one year course/job kind of position.

    There is a question in the application form I couldn't understand:
    "How much notice would you have to give from your present position?"

    I don't have any idea what is this question about.
    Any help?

    Closed for winter...

    I think it means "how long are you legally bound to your current job ?" / "if you cancel your current job now how long will you still have to work for the current company ?"

    Usually if you are working for someone you have to cancel a few months before you stop working for them so that they can make new arrangements... And I think that is what they are asking for. How long will it take for you to get rid of your current job.

    Indeed, glace is correct.

    They're asking basically how much time you'd need to discontinue your current job.

    Yeah, I think grace is right as well. It's a bit vague though.

    BurakUeda, as glace has explained, they want to know how long in advance you must let your current employer know to be able to leave.

    I must be honest in saying I can't see what is vague about it. It is a standard manner of asking the quantity of time needed to give leave at one's current job.

    When I read it, I had no idea it was about a job interview.

    I understand now.

    I still think it could've been said better.
