in thread Do my homework for me!

You just keep telling yourself that. I'm extremely fortunate in that my workplace's hiring procedure includes a case study -- and it works, too -- but all but a handful of employers look at your credentials, and maybe your resumé and references, and don't do any practical check on whether you can actually do the job they're hiring you for. If you're lucky, and your employer isn't afraid of wrongful-dismissal suits, your less useful cow-orkers might get fired for their incompetence, if their supervisor notices that they're not pulling their weight. Welcome to the cube farm.

    I don't know. Case studies are easy for employers, but not for employees. If I want to interview with 10 employers, and each requires 4 hours of 'homework', it's.. impossible. And it is so easy for them to say 'well, send up a code sample doing X' even if you are number 599 in their priority applicant list....
