I mean these projects, it's all "wasted" labor

Dude, if you had a company and you were hiring, how would you evaluate their work?

Their previous body of work + a pair programming session. These projects are just a waste of time for everyone involved.

EDIT: What I said above isn't necessarily true. If you learned something from the assignments or they're things that you can anonymize and add to your portfolio, then obviously it wasn't a waste for you.

I personally have no issues with these assignment, I find them interesting and I find so many use cases and solutions to them.

Maybe when you have like >10 years of experience, these projects dont make sense.
