Former Fellow(Musician/Poet) for a campaign against E-waste at Microsoft

The interview wasn't very technical. The interviewer asked me a few simple questions like, what are my motivations for writing poetry, and if given an option how would I like my poetry to impact the world. Quite frankly, I was not prepared for an interview. I just went and answered the questions spontaneously. I think, if you are a poet or a musician( I was a poet, although I got put in the musician category as well for my experience in music) it would be best if you go through the poems you submit well, and be sure of what you are trying to convey through those poems. You should be able to explain beyond any scope of ambiguity what exactly you tried to portray, what your motivation was, and what was the goal of writing such poems.
Otherwise, just remain spontaneous and you should have it!
