## Practice your soft skills in a VR simulation of a real life interview.
One of the biggest problems people face is nervousness in putting their best foot forward during interviews. We spend a lot more time on putting together a resume than practicing our resume. And even if we know our bullet points in and out, it’s hard to feel comfortable and confident when talking to a real person about ourselves and our accomplishments.
Imagine if you could get rid of your nervousness and replace it with confidence and the ability to communicate your value. Picture being ready for the questions that interviewers throw at you, and not being shaken by having to give off-the-cuff answers. Visualize yourself being able to walk away from an interview — either in-person or on Zoom — confident that you aced your self-presentation.

Practice talking through your resume in front of a virtual interviewer. Experience a realistic interview situation that’s like a VR game. This VR content allows you to be able to repeat your practice and talking through your resume until you feel completely comfortable. And then, take your newfound confidence with you into real world interviews!
## Learn how to develop and communicate your one unique skill that sets you apart from everyone else in a virtual environment
The old way of getting a job was to get a degree. If you showed up every day to class, and graduated with a good GPA, you were virtually ensured of having a job for the next 40 years. Even today, most people think that a piece of paper will get them a job.
But in the modern marketplace, it’s your skills that set you apart. In fact, the most in-demand STEM career paths — cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, user experience/UI, jobs in software development, game development, and computer science — are all skill-based. But it’s not just in technical fields where skills are valued. And you don’t need a certification to prove it.
Successful job seekers know that employers aren’t looking for a piece of paper; they’re looking for results. And they know how to communicate the results they can bring to a business with their proven skills.
In the virtual world, learn to identify what makes you unique. Master communicating the impact you’ve had in past positions. Using VR, Learn how to sell not just yourself, but the skills that you have cultivated over your career.
## Find passion, joy, and fulfillment in your work!
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a software engineer, in healthcare, UX design, don’t have a bachelor’s degree or have limited work experience, potential candidates can get great jobs. There are tons of job opportunities and job openings, if you only know where to look. Finding your next job and advancing your career path towards what fits you helps your work life to flourish. And when your work life is flourishing, you flourish.
The most in demand jobs on the job market aren’t always going to be found on linkedin or with recruiters. And you don’t have to join a startup, work at microsoft, or hop into the newest Crypto, Defi, or VR Industry in order to find exciting work and a meaningful career path.
While STEM is considered the gold standard of work success, if we’re honest, most people won’t flourish by learning python, java, or by becoming a virtual reality developer. The best job is the job that fits you, with a great company, and on a career path that utilizes your skills to the best of their ability.
