Virtual Interview Practice Profiler (VIPP) will empower first generation college students to strengthen
the skills employers value
Nearly 3 million students graduate from two- and four-year colleges in the US each year. Many of these students are the first in their family to attend college and seek high-skilled jobs. They have little opportunity to practice or prepare for how best to present their story and position themselves in competitive, professional settings. AMI is developing VIPP to empower first generation college students to practice job interviews and receive performance feedback from a virtual coach on how to communicate their grit and ambition in ways that employers value.
VIPP aims to meet students where they are—on their mobile devices—offering 15-minute practice interviews whenever they like. Students then receive immediate, actionable feedback.
With VIPP, students will have multiple opportunities to gain interview experience at their convenience. Moreover, they will receive automatic guidance on how to share their stories and demonstrate their communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. VIPP will be offered as a mobile application for students and as a subscription service for colleges and training programs.
