Do you get that sinking feeling when you see another startup doing what you’re doing – this is normal right?

The industry I'm building in is becoming quite trendy, and I've seen a bunch of early stage competitors researching on reddit lately. I'm wondering if it's common to get a sinking feeling/minor anxiety when you see others doing what you're doing? Is it fair argument to say… the ones who build the best product, the fastest will win out? I try to use this feeling to just keep pushing me on

I have been asked to do a full Marketing plan as part of a job interview.. is this normal?

This is a former startup who has now been acquired by a retail giant, but they are still keeping the old brand and want to expand it

I have passed already 3 rounds of interviews with this company and now that I have asked me to present a marketing plan for the company's expansion to a new country (which is basically the role they are hiring for). They asked for the full value proposition, buyer persona, marketing mix..the plan should be a 12 months plan as well!!

I feel this is too much and what if they do not hire me? Then they can take my ideas for free and use them. Is this normal? I have been asked to do presentations in the past as parts of the hiring process but not a whole plan for the company. I want this job but I am now thinking to withdraw my application and look for something else because I do not think that what they are asking is fair.

Has anyone got an opinion on this? Is it ok for them to request this? Is this common practice?

Thank you!!
