After an interview, I’ve been asked to provide samples of work. Is it common to have an online portfolio with sanitized deliverables that have sensitive information redacted?

Heard of one smaller consulting firm doing that, but can't be that common because let's face it, it's all still your current/former employer IP

See if they will give you a project to work on instead. Many friends who moved to analytics roles had to do some mini projects during their interviews

A recruiter asked me for samples and I laughed at them. Still got the job.

Say no

Don’t provide free work. Ever.

I feel totally blindsided by the interview I just had. I talked informally with Partner 1 before the interview and was told the position would be in one of the firm’s satellite offices. Then, during an interview with Partner 1 and Partner 2, Partner 2 mentioned that I’d have to move to the state where the firm is headquartered because he believes face-time is really important for training/mentoring. I have no plans to move and really hope this wasn’t all a huge waste of time.

Today I had a 4th round interview and gave a 10 min presentation for a position I really want. I honestly love everything about this position and is my dream job. I thought it went really well & she seemed very positive. She said she would follow up with the ceo (who I already met with) and let me know about next steps. I was originally told there would be 5 rounds and with every other round I’ve known next steps before I left the interview. This time I had to wait. Is this a good or a bad sign?
