I have a friend who recently got very far in an interview process, and then the company decided to pause the process while they hired for another position. Since then, my friend has noticed the company using marketing material she created as part of her interview. Meanwhile, they still haven't resumed hiring for her position, and it's been over a month.
Has anyone seen something like this before? It seems unfair that the company would take the free work and use it, without ever following up with my friend. But maybe that's fair game?
