I've been working as a security guard since 2011 but have had two temporary government jobs (from 2009-2010 and during 2014). I really want this job because unlike the previous two temporary positions and though it isn't explicitly stated in the posting below, this position has the potential to become full time permanent after the year is over. That's according to the email communication I had with HR about the position/interview.

Below is the job posting

Job Class: Office & Administrative Specialist Intermediate
Working Title: OASI
Who May Apply: Open to all qualified job seekers
Date Posted: 01/11/2016
Closing Date: 01/19/2016
Division: Workers' Compensation
Salary Range: $15.77- $20.90/hourly; $32,928- $43,639 /annually
Job Class Option: Temporary

Job Summary
Qualified applicants from this announcement will be used to fill up to 2 temporary positions for up to one year.

OVERVIEW: We are seeking applications from talented individuals who find public service meaningful, are innovators at work and enjoy using their talents to solve problems for this full-time, temporary position for up to one year.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION: Provide support for the intervention process, while maintaining and processing all eFax’s and Pretrial Statements for the workers’ compensation division.

Minimum Qualifications:

- Business English sufficient to understand and apply the oral and written instructions needed to complete all assignments accurately; read, comprehend, and communicate effectively with a varied clientele.
- Customer Service sufficient to establish and maintain effective working relationships, communicate
courteously with, and meet and assist clients in person or on the phone.
- Math sufficient to add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers.

Preferred Qualifications:
Legal and/or medical terminology.
Workers’ Compensation process.
Basic office equipment: copier, printer, eFax, scanner, etc
What sort of prep do you think I should do? I researched the Worker's Comp process as even though that isn't listed as a Minimum Qualification, it is still preferred. Part of the interview will involve a "Clerical test." What are they testing exactly? How to use a fax machine? Typing speed? Clerical test is all the information given but I'm wondering what exactly it will likely involve?

Thanks for any help you can provide
