Virtro Entertainment has launched a new product that takes practising for a job interview into virtual reality (VR).
Be Confident: Job Interview Simulations allows users to improve their job interview skills through conversational role-playing with Virtual Human interviewers in VR or on a web browser.
COVID-19 has changed how job interviews are conducted — mostly taking place online with video conferencing tools. This change adds new challenges for job seekers — especially those who need a career transition and are not familiar with using video conferencing tools.
“The simulation mirrors a real job interview, but rather than a human interviewing the candidate, trained artificially intelligent characters we call Virtual Humans carry out the interviews. It is an amazingly effective practice tool for students, newcomers and those in career transition,” said President at Virtro, Lee Brighton.
The Job Interview Simulations also delivers metrics and analytics, in addition to a complete transcript and audio file of the user’s interview. They can self-evaluate or share the results with a career advisor or mentor.
“It’s tough for job seekers right now, with unemployment high in a competitive job market, it is critical to present well at each interview,” said Chief Executive Officer at Virtro, Jordan Brighton. “Job Interview Simulations is an application designed specifically to help people improve their skills by allowing users to practice in simulated interviews.”
Earlier this month Virtro announced it is working with the Department of National Defence (DND) to develop an immersive language application to help members of the armed forces practice and retain their English and French skills.
