Hello, helpful people of this sub, I recently got an interview for an internship after applying to many places, and I am very happy about it. I had my first introductory interview with the company recruiter and co-founder and I believe it went well. after the interview they said they would give me a task and if I complete the task well I would get a second technical interview. generally, I was glad to work on the tasks and get my second interview. but when I got the task it was quite big and I don’t know if it is an appropriate task for a react intern but I don’t have any experience so I came to this sub to ask.
It’s not technically the same thing but this is something similar I found.
things I would like to point out.
The Co-founder told me if I cant complete it in 2 to 3 hours I shoudn’t even continue with my application They are in a rush to launch and I will solely be responsible for the frontend even tho they have a full stack developer but he would like to focus on the backend only they told me to make most things functional and it is much more complicated than the image I shared it has a mini slideshow, calendar section, and search bar …
I guess my question is, is it a normal practice to give this kind of task to an intern and I am just being a b*ch, or is it a red flag. I was really desperate to find this opportunity so I don’t want to give it up easily. my friend thinks they already found someone and they just want to see if they could eliminate me although that’s a bit far-fetched.
