Freelance Copywriter Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sterling Publishing (New York, NY) in July 2010.

Interview

Received email from senior copywriter who was forwarded my resume from her boss, who earlier worked with me at another company. Offered me freelance assignment lasting four months. No questions, writing samples requested. When I got to job, found out that we were a poor match; I wrote dry, academic stuff, she wanted fluffly copy for craft and children's titles. I lasted out the job but it was hellish receiving her constant, berating emails about my writing style. She never criticized me in person; just froze me out. It really shook my confidence.

Interview Questions

  • No questions asked at all. She hired me on the basis of my resume, which was accurate, even though it was a poor fit for the position.   Answer Question

Negotiation

She quoted me $25 an hour. I said that was my minimum. She assumed I wanted more and told me she'd try to get me $30, which happened.
