What's your thought on design tasks for a job application?

    You should be paid, regardless of whether or not the task relates directly to their company, product, etc. If they don't want to pay, then they need to learn how to better judge talent and skills whether that's from looking at work examples, or (gasp) actually speaking to a person about their process, personal design theories, etc.

      Thank you for the insight, I am not sure how many companies will through this request since I currently live in India and companies might be wary of paying for such a thing, however, I will keep this in mind.

      Thank you, Nicholas, for your time and comment.

      Can you share any insights about how to better judge talent and skills through words only? Because, IMO, it's pretty hard.

      I've seen a lot of candidates that can talk a good game, but you once you get down to a design challenge/task/exercise you find out they were just using all the words they learned from the book they recently read.
