Look at the June 2000 issue of intercom, the Magazine of the Society for
Technical Communication.
The article by Freya T. Winsberg, "Hiring Techinical Writers: Are We
Looking for the Right Skills?" offers some insight to your dilemma.

I hope this is helpful!

Today, I have the privilege of sitting in on a tech. writer interview
my first ever. Can anybody provide me with some questions I should
aside from the standard questions I've been given by HR. I guess I'm
looking for questions more specific to tech. writing. I really have
idea what I should be asking, b/c I've only ever worked by myself as a

tech. writer, and I've never sat in the 'hot seat' myself (I was
fortunate to know the ppl I worked for beforehand, so an interview
wasn't necessary).

Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance!
