Rule 1: Make sure about what kind of writer you want
Before giving the add or asking people about hiring a content writer make sure about what kind of content professional writer you really need, there are a lot of content related jobs and you are basically looking for a person who fits in your requirements.

Content professionals have different fields : marketing, editing, advertising etc and You`re probably not going to have all experiences in a one person so make sure you prioritize according to your goals.
Rule 2: Put their skills to the test

So to reduce the risk, put the professional writers to the test. Give them paid assignments that shows what kind of work you really want. For example when you interviewing someone ask them to explain any phenomenon, a person who has experience have ton of researches, can explain you in no time.

Applicants will always only show their best work, contents and blogs have usually been through an editing process.You as a head always want to see new professional contents.
You can ask the candidates to write a sample during interview, ask them to write anything creative related to your company. Don`t go overboard because you are not paying them for their work and tell them it`s just for the sake of interview you are not going to publish it.
Rule 4: Hire people who have capabilities
Hire those people who have the capabilities of turning boring facts into easy and interesting ones. They take their work as challenge and can achieve anything in their life.
Always call a meeting and ask for the updates and their impressions about the contents and what changes they would like to make it better.
Hire potential new comers to your business and brand who can deliver values, creativity and ideas to your business.
Ask the client for their daily routine work, and make sure they meet your daily requirements.
