That's way suspicious / kinda a jerk thing to ask.
As someone on the more n00b end of the scale I don't mind reasonable coding example / projects. But asking for one cold gives me a very poor impression.
Sounds like the other side of it will be a zero hour contract
guitargirl1545734dOf all the places I applied for internships that didn't send immediate rejections, they sent a coding assessment first.
hinst22234dA couple of hours of work is not that much. If you want the job, it's probably worth to spend these two hours on the project. It's better to spend two hours on coding a project than to spend two hours answering funny questions in an interview
If you haven't even spoken to someone at the company .... how much could you even want the job?
Outside "god I need a job / any job", I don't think you know much yet.
Job hunting is such a taxing / time sink as it is, a few extra hours per job when you're still at the phase where you know almost nothing could be astronomical.
87percentrum8933dI ended up taking competency tests for various languages because I left school in year 8 and only had a couple years experience freelancing, but refuse any live coding challenges or other dog and pony shit shows. It's highly competitive out the but I won't dance on command
