Some questions I would ask are: What kind of blog are you looking for? (Some people may want you to focus in certain areas, for example, I was the blogger for the Communication classes, so I made it a point to incorporate my classes into my posts);In your opinion, what would a perfect post look like? (This might seem a little on the nose for an interview, but I think it's important to understand what they're looking for right away. You need to know i that is something you can deliver, because you don't want to yours, or your potential employer's time); and Who are some of your favorite writers? (It is important to understand the kind of voice your employer if looking for. If they enjoy writers that are very factual and matter of fact, you should work on creating pieces that appeal to that. You should not change the way you write just to appeal to an employer, but this is a good note to take into consideration when moving forward with this company).

This is a difficult question to answer. Many of the career fairs I have been to at Kennesaw State University haven't had the best opportunities for English majors interested in writing. I will say, though, having a blog can be a great attribute for any job. It is great to put on a resume because it shows employers you have capable writing skills and you know how to work with the basics of web design and technology. I also believe it shows skills in being a fast learner and following directions given to you (the website walks you through the process). As a bonus, the website shows personal creativity--do you think outside the box? Is your design innovative? What is your message? If you do get the opportunity to ask questions, I would think what is personal to you. If you are writing, what do you want to be writing about? Do you care if the company's message falls in line with your values? Also, does the company have a style of writing? Style guides are always important to be aware of before doing any sort of writing for a company.
