From the white papers I've seen or taken a role in writing, they are
documents (typically printed and distributed on "white paper" which is
where I think the phrase comes from) that explain a concept, idea, or
product. The paper may also explain how the product will benefit you
or your company. As for format, it varies and really depends on what
the company puts out there as their own standard. The structure can be
formal (e.g. 1.0, 1.2, 1.4.1, etc.) to casual (more like an essay or
college paper). It may or may not include graphics. For your
situation, I would ask the recruiter to send you one of the company's
white papers to see what you would have to do. Or, you could even
visit the company's website and see if they have copies available
there. Good luck!

I have a recruiter who has contacted me about writing "white papers" on a
variety of topics. What are white papers? Just informational writing on a
topic? what is their purpose? is there a format?
