    In your profile you say you are an English teacher. As such you should make a good example by writing correct English on this site for learners, using appropriate capitalisation and punctuation.

    Fair enough!

    I am not a teacher though. I've picked the wrong bullet!

    But I'll try to set a good example!

    Any answer to my question above?

    Thank you

    Re: sector, department, section, division

    It very much depends on how the words are used within the partcular company. Very often, a division is a fairly large part of the comany. In each of a small number of divisions there may be a number of departments. For example, a vehicle manufacturer may have lorry and car divisions, each of which may have its own research and development, engineering, sales, etc departments. A section can be part of a division or of a department. As far as I know 'sector' is not used a great deal withing companies; it is more generally used of parts of the economy as a whole.
