Rule #1 of take home modelling tests, check if author and last modified tie. Rule #2, make sure the next round involves the candidate walking you through the model. We use take home and find it's a great way to differentiate candidates, those who do the bare minimum vs. those who send back a full blown model and a deck to summarise findings.

Please film yourself when they have you walk through the model. WSO could use more comedy.

This may be a long shot but I might've just taken this same test. PM me and I may be able to send you the test if it's same firm. will help you figure out exactly what you need the modeler to do for you lmfaooo

Update in case anyone else got scummed by this kid. He reached out to me begging for help. Didn't see initial msg last week so told him I'd do it Sunday. No response back until last night. Begs for help again, told him sure and got to work on it at around 7 after my actual job. He msg me saying it's due by 9est. I told him i prob won't finish it by then. He switches up and says it's actually 9cst. Send it to him 15min before then. Simple office acq model w brief answers to the prompts. Radio silence. Now today he's saying the model "was trash" and he used his own (for context I literally freelance model on the side for 2 diff developers in addition to my development job, but ok bud).

Long story short he pulled a fast one on me and won't be paying. Funniest part is he's thick enough to send the case study from his personal email, so I have his name. Imagine he gets the job and someone happens to let his future employer know what went down.. boy that'd be a real shame..

Just chiming in here, he was legit. Modeled it and did a quick review, sent the $500.
