This paper presents an approach that makes use of a virtual character and social signal processing techniques to create an immersive job interview simulation environment. In this environment, the virtual character plays the role of a recruiter which reacts and adapts to the user’s behavior thanks to a component for the automatic recognition of social cues (conscious or unconscious behavioral patterns). The social cues pertinent to job interviews have been identified using a knowledge elicitation study with real job seekers. Finally, we present two user studies to investigate the feasibility of the proposed approach as well as the impact of such a system on users.
