What You'll Learn
The VR interview skills training module allows users to fine-tune their skills and their performance in job interview simulations. Users can choose between six modes for answering interview questions in their own words. They can then switch positions with the interviewer to playback their answers as seen through the interviewer’s eyes. Users can test their skills on the following topics:
- Classic – those common questions that come up in nearly every interview
- Career goals – professional achievements and aspirations
- Character – who you are, your morals, integrity and values
- Competency/behavioral – evidencing your ability to do the job
- Curveball or creative questions – designed to put you on the spot
The VR Experience
Users of this virtual reality job interview training module, will enter any four of the immersive learning simulations of a job interview where they will learn interview skills, perfect their pitch and practice answering dozens of interview questions. During the job interview, the simulation provides hints and guidance on best – and worst – practice for every question answered. Once the job interview is complete, users can spend time reviewing their performance by switching positions with the interviewer and watching a playback of their interview. Trainees are also provided non-VR exercises to work on interview preparation. Once these anxiety reduction techniques are mastered, learners typically continue on to virtual interview training. Students can build their skills autonomously, through repeated practice, personalized feedback and in total psychological safety.
