Abstract

Technology has changed the ways we do things. Traditionally, counseling used to be in a face-to-face environment to help those in need. But today, there are more and more new technologies being applied to counseling. One of the developing trends of counseling is cyberization. College students are facing the need of counseling on their job-hunting, so this project is proposed aiming at using a 3D-based environment to help college students on virtual interview training. We constructed an interview scene in Second Life and used role reversal strategies to proceed with virtual interview. Four students recruited to participate in the pilot study thought that the virtual interview can provide them with the opportunity to practice and be less afraid in the real situation.
