    Academic Style Freelance Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ultius (Remote, OR) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online and was asked to submit a 2 page paper. Submitted it and was informed my application would not go forward as they put it, 'your sample paper missed a number of key points we were seeking.' Thats fine. I emailed them to ask exactly what points my paper was missing but was told, "We take multiple areas into consideration between your sample paper and your qualifications. While we would like to respond to every applicant who asks the specifics as to what could be improved on, we are unable to do so because it would take too much time. Even though you were not chosen for this job, it doesn't mean you are a bad writer, it just means you are not the best fit for this position."

    That really left a bad taste in my mouth. Is a candidate is willing to spend 30 min to an hour writing a sample paper, the company must be willing to over what criteria the paper did not meet. Really low and pathetic of them to treat job seekers this way.

    Interview Questions

    • Guidelines for the sample paper.

      We would like you to write a two (2) page sample paper on one of the following topics:

      "Can excessive use of social media contribute to addictive behaviors or mental health issues?"

      -OR-

      "Do the benefits of genetically modified products outweigh the risks?"

      Please use two (2) outside sources to make your point. An abstract is not required, but please include page numbers, a title, and an appropriate citations page. The paper should be cited and formatted using MLA, and double-spaced using 12pt Times New Roman font. You may find this sample document from the OWL website helpful. Please use your first and last name as the file name, and send it as a Microsoft Word document. Be sure to create the sample document as a research paper using a professional tone, and not a casual or first-person essay.   1 Answer
