    For freelancing that is definitely the case, I used to always ask to be paid whenever I was freelancing. But when looking for a permanent role, it's usually about finding out how you think and the focus is on a tiny (sometimes fictional) problem.

      That’s true, I should clarify. Recently someone asked for me to complete a design test that consisted of redesigning a page from their company presentation deck that confuses their clients. I chose not to participate. But I can understand an exercise where a client/company wants to see how you solve a particular problem, related to design but unrelated to any actual pain point they are having.
