I applied for a junior marketing position with a job 2 weeks ago and got a positive response a few days later. I find it funny that the first step they requested of me was to complete a mock-up writing assignment before any sort of in-person interview even took place. Does anyone have any experience with a similar situation? Is this a good sign that they liked my profile?

Basically the assignments before jobs interview are analysis of your skills and interpretation of your capability. You must prepare assignment like a business plan in real world having original facts and figures and it could be implemented.

Essentially the assignments previously occupations meet are investigation of your aptitudes and translation of your ability. You should get ready task like a marketable strategy in certifiable having unique statistical data points and it could be actualized.

There's a trend among start-ups (and some larger companies) : giving candidates "homework" assignments. Homework assignments lead to candidate abuse. Knock it off (or at least be reasonable). I've seen many friends and clients go through this. As a pre-screening round before an onsite interview, a company gives them a "homework" assignment. This takes them hours to complete, but they finally submit it. A few days later they get the canned "thanks but no thanks" email. Not cool.
From a company's perspective, I get it. Homework assignments offer a company an ability to see how a candidate completes a relevant project, and one that's a larger scale project than what can be done in a timed interview. And, hey, it's basically "free" for the company. Someone has to review the project to give a thumbs up/down, but that doesn't take too long. This is exactly what's happening. Candidates spend many hours completing homework assignments for companies which are not sufficiently interested in them. This is abusing candidates. Knock it off.

If you are going to give homework assignments, make sure you set up a procedure that prevents (or limits) such abuse.
