VITA (Virtual Interactive Training Agent)
Through U.S.VETS Career Network, L.A. area veterans can access VITA, a virtual reality job interview practice system.
VITA allows veterans to practice their job-interview skills in a VR environment before they go on actual interviews.
Veterans who have used VITA say it helps them give better answers to interview questions and more clearly explain the relevance of their military experience. They also report feeling less anxiety and more confidence in interviews.
VITA was developed by the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies in partnership with the Dan Marino Foundation.
The Call of Duty Endowment helps vets find jobs where they can thrive. U.S.VETS holds the Call of Duty Seal of Distinction for Veteran Job Placement Excellence.
