SPARC Announces That Prepado Interview Preparation App Has Come to iPhone

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 08, 2014 Prepado, an interview preparation tool for job seekers released by SPARC, has taken their platform to the next level releasing an iPhone® and iPad® app designed for iOS 7 with in-app video capture to allow users to view and assess their interview performance. The app syncs with existing Prepado accounts to provide a streamlined experience for new and current users.

Major elements of the application for both the iPhone and iPad include: Interview Builder: Simply tell Prepado the job title for which the candidate is interviewing and it pulls the perfect practice questions.

Video: In-app video capture allows candidates to record themselves while answering interview questions that can be played back and evaluated.

Design: The user experience is clean and engaging, and can be used to navigate between individual questions and practice interviews.

Prepado has thousands of interview questions that are submitted, rated, and reviewed by real hiring managers and interviewers. The interview questions are then organized by category and difficulty so they can be chosen for the appropriate practice interview based on the job title and level of experience.

“Prepado can be used to prepare for any job, from a communications intern to a director of sales or even something very technical like a JavaScript developer. Getting started is easy, Prepado instantly pulls the best questions for your position, and continues to add new questions as practice interviews are created,” said Jake Benardot, Product Owner.

In a survey of over 2,000 bosses, 33% claimed that they know within the first few questions of an interview whether they will hire someone.1 Non-verbal communication is almost equally as important as the actual answers in an interview setting. “Watching how you answer real interview questions asked by real companies is a great way to see how prepared you are for a real-life, in-person interview,” said Christina Lock, VP of HR & Operations. “I’ve conducted thousands of interviews, and as an interviewer, your eyes are just as important as your ears.” “In addition to the video functionality, we’ve also added the ability for Prepado users to share and request feedback from their mentor, peers, or even their friends. Prepado users can invite reviewers via email to review their written or video responses,” said Benardot. “Responses are still entirely confidential, but it gives our users the opportunity to get additional feedback before they step into an interview.” Learn more about our interview preparation tools by visiting or downloading the Prepado app from the App Store. The first practice interview is free, and a Prepado subscription allows access to run unlimited practice interviews. Job seekers can get started today and crush their next interview with Prepado.
