Hi,
I know that "a" and "an" are used for countable nouns to tell one piece of item."the" is used for to tell one particular item.I wonder whether I have to use "a" or "an"?
for instance,

I started working at telecom company
I started working at a telecom company

which one is correct or in the meaning what makes difference?

Thanks

"a" and "an" are used for countable nouns

Well,
strange, there is a commercial on tv.I watch it everyday ? I am little bit confused Emotion: smile

additionally,do I always have to use "a" or "an" ? or is there times I shouldnot use

Thanks

It is possible if 'Telecom' is the name of the company -- 'I started working at Telecom Company, Ltd -- but more likely the article is just unstressed and difficult to perceive.

A or an is used before all singular countable nouns except those preceded by demonstrative adjectives (this, that) and possessive adjectives (his, my, etc.)

Hi,
It is not the name of the company.I am 100% sure of it.

how is it understood? if it is said," at a telecom company"?

thanks
