VR Simulator sets students up for job interview success in France

Following the release of the Job Interview Simulator in May, we’ve started deploying the solution at a number of educational institutions all over the world in order to assess learning performance and optimise deployment modalities. As part of our Partnership Programme, we’ve recently piloted the solution with students at HEC Paris, KEDGE and Passy Saint Honoré Sup.


VR Simulator sets students up for job interview success in France


The VR job interview training sessions were delivered on campus, with the support of Antilogy, our partner and distributor for France. Each student had the opportunity to complete 4 job interview training scenarios, following a dedicated intro session. The aim of the sessions was not only to deliver an immersive interview experience to the students and empower them to learn crucial interview techniques but to gather relevant data and insights to help identify the best possible ways to work with educational institutions.

Training in VR has been a real game-changer
Following completion of the simulations, an overwhelming 84% of students reported that they would recommend the experience to peers, 73% were able to identify ways to improve their skills upon completion and 71% of students reported that they feel more confident ahead of interviews


It was better than a YouTube video or classroom training. I’d love to repeat the simulations on my own at home before an interview.

I was really impressed by the range of skills covered. I think anyone would benefit from this training - not just young people.

What’s next?
Following the feedback we’ve gathered from the sessions, we’ve been hard at work this summer developing an updated version of the simulator with new characters, environments, UI and exercises, which will be released in mid-October.
