A few months ago we wrote a post called “The Best Way to Have the Interviewer Get Your Name Right” that included some easy tips to ensure the interviewer pronounced your name correctly. But now there’s an App for that (because there’s an app for everything). Namez is a an app that keeps a database of name pronunciations that can help potential employers get your name right.
So how does it work?
Namez has a database of often mispronounced names that you can search through or add to if your name or specific pronunciation isn’t available. You can then share the audio of your name via social media, emails, or embed it into your website/blog. So if you’re emailing with a recruiter or employer, you can include the audio pronunciation so when you arrive at the interview you will be confident that they will get your name right.
