They asked me to write a 1200-word blog post on the Toyota Prius.

3 Answers

It wasn't difficult, as much as a time-waster. They were pooling candidates to amass free writing samples to use for their blog. Less

Having some experience with their application process, I can assure you that the 'Toyota Prius' prompt is only utilized to gauge research ability and personal style. Everyone receives it, making it easier to review and compare the quality of applicants, but it's never used in blogs. As for duration of the application process, sounds like they're doing a great job of evaluating applicants to ensure that the right ones are accepted. Less

I was prompted to write the same 1200 word article on the history, concept and future of Toyota Prius". The wording in the instructions explicitly stated Wikimotiv would not use the sample article for content, but would only use it for the intent of qualifying candidates. Less


How do you prioritize topics that need to be written?

2 Answers

I try to get a sense of the need for the topics by asking subject matter experts and other interested parties; then I prioritize based on whether this is a new topic, a revision, a requirement to address changed circumstances, or a "nice to have." Emergency topics take first priority; then topics that can be completed quickly; then topics that are needed, but which will require more time to investigate. Less

You would have to draw up an outline that included variables with respect to deadline and value. Once that was accomplished, you should develop an analysis of each item with respect to profit, qty available, vs realistic completion of the project deadline expectation. Say we have 100 widgets that are slow sellers, with a low margin and time consuming to write, and 1000 widgets with the same amount of work, yet are far more profitable, you would outline them in a multi-fold hierarchical format. Equal work and deadline, unequal values. If the next four items were also fast sellers with high quantities and significant profit margins, and took as much work as the 100 widgets, decisions would need to be made. Rush jobs are better served by making compromises. It's better to exclude weaker profit items, in order to ensure all high profit items are included and the quality of the finished product does not read as slap-dash, and that pesky deadline is met. Over-reaching is the hobgoblin of lost accounts. Less
