The Writing Sample - Email aims to display the writer's ability to respond to any informal email request, set in a professional environment. The final sample, in email form, will provide an idea of the writer's skill level in communicating information while maintaining an appropriate level of professionalism. Because gauging writing skills is a highly subjective endeavor, we leave it to you to determine the level of writing effectiveness represented by the candidate's sample. We do believe though, that providing a controlled, immediate writing environment helps to assess the skills of the writer, in context. A scored, multiple choice, Business Writing test that focuses on such skills as brainstorming, grammar, organization, approaches to writing is also available.
