Looking for feedback. What are your thoughts on when asked to provide a case study or project plan as a part of the interview process? I know BCD Travel and other start-ups make these kinds of request.

I know this is a little late. I did one for BCD Travel. They gave me two days and I busted my ass on a 5 page case study only to be called a week later to be told, “we are going to move forward with other candidates. From that day, I said NEVER AGAIN. This is a way companies get free consulting. So I have taken my BCD Travel submission and perfected it. And now when the suggestion of case studies come up, I’m straight up, “If your hiring process includes a case study study as submission, I can only comply by providing previous published pieces or a case study of my choice. Case studies require time and research and I’m not in position to give free consultation service, if is contingent on a position where you are interviewing 5 candidates.” I don’t know if that helps. I say, if it’s between you and 1 other candidate maybe, more 4, push back. Until they come up with a way to encrypt a submission so that it cannot be copied or photographed, I’ll never do another case study without pay!

Need some advice! Should we update our wedding start time to 4pm so we can have our after party 10pm-1am instead of 5pm wedding start and 11pm-1am after party? We sent wedding invites with a 5pm start time because we have 6hrs at the venue and the bar around the corner said the after party had to be 11pm-1am. Now bar said thee after party can start at 10pm. We can realistically contact all who RSVPd yes to let them know AND a 4pm start time means we still have daylight (it’s a winter wedding).
