“Job in reality” (“Job i virkeligheden”) is the name of the project, which is formed by a collaboration between KL and Khora and the municipalities of Skive, Aabenraa, Aalborg, Rudersdal, and Roskilde. Through 5 different VR movies, viewers get the opportunity to experience a refugee’s journey, into the Danish labor market, and learn about some of the challenges and expectations, that they were met along the way. The movies also focus on the Danish working culture, which includes a lot of unwritten rules that can be hard to explain and needs to be experienced.
Using VR for integration purposes makes it possible to deliver an immersive experience of the Danish labor market. Many refugees and immigrants do not possess any knowledge or experience from the Danish labor market, and instead creates a lot of notions about it, for better or worse. The VR movies can help put down some of the myths and create a smooth transition towards the labor market with a better understanding of the Danish society in general.
The solution includes 5 individual 360-degree movies representing 5 different job industries. The movies are targeted towards refugees and immigrants and are introducing the unskilled labor market in Denmark. The movies take place at concrete workplaces in the following industries: Transport, Retail, Hotel, Cleaning, Care-taking.
Every movie is around 5-7 minutes long and available in 6 different languages: Danish, English, Arabic, Farsi, Somali, and Tigrinya.
The movies can be used by municipalities, language centers, educational institutions, companies and civil society, etc. They can, for example, be used for integration purposes through danish lessons. The movies can be experienced and re-experienced and analyzed with an educational angle towards it.
