The Writing Sample - Advertising/Marketing aims to display the writer's ability to craft a short, descriptive, promotional piece. The final sample will provide an idea of the writer's skill level in communicating the specifics of a product, promoting a product, and appealing to the public. 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. It is for this reason that we provide this environment and encourage you to use it, free of charge.
