The possibilities offered by virtual reality seem endless. From the exploration of totally virtual worlds to immersive video games through a large number of new or eccentric experiences, the field of possibilities seems to be barely cleared and there is still so much to discover. Often new applications surprise by the originality of the idea and the concept. This is the case with Pôle emploi which intends to adopt virtual reality to offer candidates the opportunity to discover a profession among the branches that are actively recruiting.. Update on this new tool from the employment agency.
Pôle emploi will use virtual reality to test jobs
It is often difficult for some candidates to imagine what a particular job they do not know can actually be. ATIn order to avoid preconceptions and wasted time, Pôle emploi will offer virtual reality observation internships to "test" a profession. The candidate will then be offered to put a virtual reality headset on his head, headphones in his ears and to arm himself with controllers to discover a new profession.
He could, for example, practice working in supermarket shelves to place products on the shelves or even working as a self-service employee. An original but welcome way to discover a profession that the candidate would not have thought of or left with negative a priori. In a matter of minutes, the candidate will know if he is made for this position or not without wasting time in an unnecessary observation internship. The sectors which recruit will be particularly in the spotlight during these virtual work experiences.
Pôle emploi will also use virtual coaches for job interviews
The job interview is an ordeal that is often dreaded by many unsure candidates. As well, Pôle emploi has also provided a virtual coach to prepare candidates for a job interview. Questions relating in particular to the qualities and defects of candidates will be asked so that they are not destabilized in the face of a recruiter.
The management aspect of professional and family life is also put forward to prepare candidates for questions that can often be prohibitive.. A system of good points and bad points, which will be awarded to the candidate, will make it possible to know which axes to work on in order to succeed, at best, in a job interview. New tools that can help many job seekers but also relieve some of the tasks of the often overworked Pôle Emploi employees and not being able to deal properly with so many job seekers.
