  1. Why are you interested in this position? How does your previous experience relate to this position?
  2. What can you tell me about your writing process and how do you deal with writing for an audience you are not well acquainted with?
  3. What makes good writing? How do you know if a piece of content is performing well?
  4. Can you give us one example of how you pulled a story idea back from what you felt was certain failure?
  5. When you receive a document to edit, how do you approach the process? What are you strengths and weaknesses as an editor?
  6. How do you balance independent thinking and cooperation with others? Share an example.
