Sollicitatievragen voor Technical writer gedeeld door sollicitanten
Some general, CV-based questions about myself to break the ice. Then more pragmatic, use-case-based questions like: - how to deal with their current doc in terms of maintenance, improvement, etc. - I suggested migrating it to make it more efficient, so we discussed possible alternatives like wiki and DITA XML - the core of their doc is API doc so we talked about API doc standards, best practices, doc generators like JavaDoc and Swagger. - Questions on markup like wiki syntax, markdown, rst - Hands-on examples of how I handled issues/problems/mistakes in the past and how I achieved positive results in my past experience as a tech writer
All in all is was a very relaxing interview where both parties tried to figure out how much we liked each other and if this could be a good match for both of us. They offered me the job and I accepted it. I can say that so far it is a wonderful ride, very rewarding professionally and with great colleagues.
Mostly about my specific experience that related to the job (APIs, tooling). The company is also very focused on creating a healthy empowered culture, so questions about the type of environment I feel comfortable working in and how I might operate in their working environment.
