What a fun job description! Sounds like they’d want you to be a little creative, but you don’t want to go too out of the box youre right…maybe a “guide to XYZ town” like in a travel brochure, or a how-to for something interesting (How to Skydive! LOL maybe not), or a restaurant review…would those be too crazy?

depends on what you’re applying for. the way this reads though, i would assume they’d want a sample of previously written/published works. i would put part of a thesis or something related to the field/job i’m applying for, for instance. since this is about security (i don’t know at what level), i’d do some research on something you can imagine them tasking you with and then write a short piece on it.

What about writing a mock press release of something related to the industry? They’re not typically very long, and you can have fun with it. Good luck!

I would think of a topic that would be appropriate in their monthly newletter and write about that.  I would expect that they want to see a writing sample similar to what your job would require.

ideas: what you love about… your hometown, your family, an experience, travelling.  Your dream job, your dream vacation, what you’d love to do when you retire, a hobby – cooking, gardening, blogging, excercising.  How you’ve achieved a goal in your life – graduating, lost weight, completing a big project etc.  What you’d do if you won the lottery, the ideal boss, what you love about working in the ___ industry.  How an experience (college, growing up in the south/north, having a large/small family) has made you who you are today.  Oh so many ideas.

stay away from – politics, religion, too many personal details, bad mouthing anyone, not showing technical & creativeness.

I think you should write a mock press-release or a mock newsletter article – something along the lines of what you would be creating as a part of the position.
