Inan attempt to more easily filter technical writing candidates in the hiring process, Tom Johnson is experimenting with a series of multiple-choice tests to “take the pulse” of any technical writing candidate to easily see whether a candidate is worth moving up to the next level in a hiring process (for example, moving from the resume pile to a phone screen).

These tests are specifically for tech comm candidates applying to mid-level of senior-level software tech writing roles that involve creating or working with API documentation.

There are four screening tests covering the following categories:

  • Industry awareness (25 questions)
  • Language (20 questions)
  • API documentation (25 questions)
  • Processes and strategies (20 questions)

Note: As this is the first iteration of my tests, this version is entirely experimental and not based on any evidence or industry-endorsed knowledge. Tom Johnson invites you to take the tests to gauge your level, provide feedback on the questions, and let him know if these tests seem worthwhile for screening candidates.
