Every year, over half a million university graduates take their chances at blue-chip companies in Nigeria. Majority of these companies subject graduates to job aptitude tests which gauge their quantitative, verbal, data interpretation and spatial reasoning skills during their first or second-stage screening process. Feedback from recruiting leads in many of these companies showed us that about 80% of the job candidates failed the exam irrespective of the class of degree held. The number one cause of this is poor preparation.
Enter 360jobtest, the first-of-its-kind mobile app that lets users practice up-to-date and relevant test questions currently used by blue-chip companies in banking, oil and gas, insurance, consulting, auditing and consumer goods industries. It provides advanced mobile features that allows users to study rigorously and practice strictly to test-time, as well as provide a summative result analysis that shows whether the candidate is ready to take the real job test or not. Here are some of features in a list:
– Works offline after download
– Up-to-date questions used by top companies, with carefully explained answers
– Test simulation with timing feature that allows candidates to practice to test-time
– Adaptive results analysis that gauges preparedness for real tests
– News about upcoming job tests and a closed forum to discuss them
The app is expected to debut online on Friday, 30th November, 2012. This will mark the first release of unlock codes for paying users who want to upgrade from the trial version (with just over 30 questions) to the full version (with over 1000 questions).
N.B: It cost N1,000 to buy an unlock code. We are presently taking orders. Trial version is available for free download at www.360jobtest.com.
