Job Interview Trainer
The text-to-speech capability of this mobile app simulates the job interview process. Voice recognition technology, however, cannot yield a hundred percent accuracy in deciphering spoken words. But the Job Interview Trainer app still helps you prepare for an interview and clinch your dream job.
Select between the two interviewing modes: “college grads” and “career changer.” The app then fields you with ten random questions that are normally asked by hiring managers on the lookout for promising talent. You can review and evaluate how well you do with your answers. Helpful tips for improving your answers sometimes show up while you are reviewing your recorded responses. In addition, you get access to other useful interview-related tips, including a pre-interview checklist.
The Job Interview Trainer is available through Google Play but is not found in the iTunes store.
