Went through an interview with a company. The hiring manager seemed he looked my profile and overall the interview was good. At the end they asked me to prepare a presentation slides with some hypothetical scenario and share it in couple days. Has anyone seen this before? Not sure what it really means?

Yes, I have been asked to put together a presentation for jobs in the past. It isn't unusual. Some things to consider...

- How much work are they asking you to do? It shouldn't take more than a few hours to complete the assignment. (E.g, one company expected me to put in 80-100hrs of work on a presentation.)

- Is there a chances your presentation could be used as "free work"? Assignments should only be marginally connected to the work you'd be doing. (E.g. a friend was asked to suggest solutions to a problem the manager was facing, the manager then implement the recommendations without hiring my friend.)

If you really want the job or feel you're getting hired is certain, then it is up to you if you want to put aside the issues above.

@LM1 😳 cheeky as hell!!!

@PTC you know what, before you start with the presentation, write them an email and tell them you will sent them a data privacy statement to sign and mention a copywrite declaration form...😁
