While pondering the possible success of a mock dating app, we decided instead to invent a program that re-shifts the public's priorities on speaking with strong, and effective communication skills. Also, thinking about getting up in front of a panel of judges and presenting this project instilled a bit of fear in us, which sparked the idea for an interactive website that allows us to practice our speaking.
What it does
This website randomly generates a mock job interview question and prompts the user for a response. The user is provided with immediate feedback using precise grading algorithms and in addition, offers research to inform the user and provide him/her with some tips and tricks.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Sometimes you don't understand why your code works but you're just glad it does. We also learned our skill base, and which ideas were way too complex for us (thankfully we collaborate well). Most importantly, we learned to delegate, not be too prideful to ask for help and that cooperation is key to a finished product.
What's next for Interview Bot
Hopefully, we can further integrate firebase into our website so we have a database to work off of to provide more detailed input for our users. We also hope to open the option of live video chat interviews with business and hiring professionals for a more realistic interview environment. It is our goal to introduce neural networks and machine learning into our interview bot so it can provide much better ratings and feedback for our users.
