Gathering Material

My group could use this Clipart photo in our presentation because our video is on the topic of Virtual Reality Mock Interviews. I couldn’t find any Clipart pictures showing a person using virtual reality in mock interviews, however this photo shows a woman who is dressed professionally and who is ready for her interview. She has her laptop with her and it looks as if she may be getting ready for a virtual mock interview. This is an example of how we want students to approach it when using the virtual mock reality interview program. They need to look professional when they are their interview.

I found this song from Soundcloud that I thought can also go with our project in the in the beginning or end of the video. This is a dubstep remix from my favorite show The Office. It is a little different than the original version, and it be good for our project especially because there are no words in the song, so our audience won’t be distracted by it. The song also sounds positive and it is important that we have our audience to be positive about going to Career Services and trying the virtual reality mock interviews.

I found this video on Youtube that explains tips for doing a Skype interview. Although it is a little different from what we are doing in showing people how to use the virtual reality mock interview program through Career Services at Rutgers, I think this video gives you tips in how to prepare for any interview that is online. I found this video really useful and relatable in what we are trying to show in our own video. It gives tips into how a Skype interview might work and also to what types of questions that the interviewer may ask online. This can be the same as the person who is doing the virtual reality mock interview. It gives pretty much the same kinds of tips that we will give in our video.


Creative Direction

My group is still finalizing the creative direction that we will take in this project. However, I think we have a general idea about the direction that we want to go in. We are leaning towards the Virtual Reality Mock Interviews theme because this is such an important topic that relates to all students who are trying to get a job or internship. In order to obtain any job, a person must go through an interview. The interview is one of the first steps for an employer to actually get to know who you are and that is where you can learn more about the company.

The concept of the Virtual Reality Mock Interviews that Rutgers Career Services provides is to help students practice answering sample interview questions, virtually. Students will get the chance to practice going on interviews virtually and the service will provide feedback and students will also have the chance to learn by watching themselves of what was recorded.

As a group we are still deciding on how we should go about making this video, but we think it may be a good idea to record someone actually using this virtual mock interview and showing the steps to how they can do this. We want to show people how simple and easy this actually is to do. Also, we talked about filming our footage from both an iPhone and maybe even a laptop to get different camera angles. My group will talk more about the creative direction once we finish our storyboard and it will help to get more ideas.
