How should one handle a strategy test for an interview and providing past client strategy example? The interviewer wants to assess thinking skills but looks like the test is for an existing client of theirs and I’m cautious of providing a recent strategy deck from my current place of work for an existing client.

We commonly issue case studies to see how you would solve an assignment. This paired with previous work shows how you approach work and put it into action. I’ve had people present work that wasn’t there’s when you simply show past work. There’s also nothing wrong with telling them you aren’t comfortable sharing proprietary information for another client. Share screen, don’t attach and send. Also demonstrates integrity.

Whitelist the client deck and generalize and you should be good. Still a bizarre ask, almost a red flag for me.

Yeah so bizarre. I’m worried they want intel on how things were done for previous clients or might rip something off. It looks so weird to be whitelisted and generalized but I’ll do that. Thank you!

don’t give away free work. especially for an existing client of theirs, that’s some BS.

Never share client strategy. Get the problem to solve from interviewer, create high level approach from there. They just want to see your thinking on how you’d approach, they don’t want detailed solutions.

Just redact any sensitive information and don’t share the actual file. Details like costs, timing, etc. Y’all are a bunch a babies about this stuff though. If you want the job you’ll have to do the test.

Their first ask is to do a test and their second ask is to provide a past client example of strategy all due at the same time by end of week 👀 apologies if my original question was not clear ^ I was walking outside while typing
