Re: Hiring TW without a test
I really doubt that your style varies that much from one job to another that someone wouldn't be able to tell that the same person wrote it. Of course I follow a style guide. If you have certain grammatical patterns in your writing, they're going to come out no matter what you write.
As a sometimes editor who has had to rewrite the same types of passages from the same authors time after time, and as someone who as scrutinized a lot of writing samples in hiring, believe me, you can tell.
