Interview Questions
Content Writer

Interview candidate will not be so much of hard work anymore. Use this following interview questions template to hire the right candidates.

In interviewing for a content writer there are three main skills that need assessing: researching, writing and editing. An obvious weakness in any of these areas will undermine the effectiveness of the others. The best candidates will have a portfolio of content that showcases their ability to write across a variety of topics and in a number of different styles. It’s reasonable to expect them to be familiar with one of the standard style guides, ranging from tomes like the Chicago Manual of Style to its slimmer and livelier counterpart from the Economist. Many of the better candidates will have a background in published journalism, a personal blog or experience in copy-writing.
