Take-home Design Tests
📌 Note: One of the hottest debates online. The ethics of using this method in the interview process. The sad reality is that majority of companies use these to measure candidates' design skills. Some have more ethical options (e.g. offer to pay for the time), others raise huge red flags when their design challenge is directly related to their business/product. Some people believe that this is a sneaky way of crowdsourcing creative ideas for free (despicable). I understand why companies do this, but also empathise with the candidates' position when they are expected to sacrifice personal time (that they may not have) to complete these.
