The proposed project deals with the problem to find a job in another country which is derived from culture and ethnic differences. Many European countries use different forms of job interview, and therefore the interviewees should attend consulting courses in order to become familiar with the diversity in the theories and practices of the interviews. In several cases however, the geographical/ economic/age barriers, become a preventing factor to attend such courses. The main goal of this project is to eliminate these barriers, providing equal opportunities to remotely attend a series of consulting courses through an innovative platform, and therefore facilitating the transition to world of work. In detail, the proposed project aims at providing people with different age and economic backgrounds with the opportunity to explore the techniques of interview, including teamwork, and control anxiety in order to empower them to take an active role in their self-presentation and career recruitment. The training process will be performed through an innovative virtual world environment, offering in this way high quality learning opportunities for unemployed and misemployed adults to adapt to different working environments and interviews.
