  3. Do you have a preferred timezone to work in?
  4. What is your experience with similar projects or tasks? 
  5. Rate your skills from 1-10 and explain your ratings. 
  6. What would you do in [situation]?

  11. How do you like to communicate (email, chat, etc.)?
  12. What questions do you have for me?
