Virtual Reality Job Expo

Utilizing the latest innovations in Virtual Reality technology and immersive learning, SkillsVR & MSD are hosting VR Job Expos across the country to facilitate connection between employers and job seekers and make the future of learning accessible to our communities.
About the VR Job Expos
The Virtual Reality Job Expo or VR Job Expo is a joint initiative by MSD & SkillsVR, utilizing Virtual Reality technology as an attraction, training, assessment, and skills certification tool to bridge the gap between employers and job seekers all over Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Expo is a safe and welcoming environment where attendees get to experience all these VR modules at their choosing! Whether they want to learn more about working in Prefabrication, or want to explore the many jobs available in Tourism, immersing themselves in as many as 12 potential work environments gives them a better idea of what kind of work the job entails. 

We play, learn, and grow together!

Utilising VR Technology in Employment


Industry partners utilize VR technology to easily showcase work environments and various career opportunities to job seekers. 

Training & Assessment

Most SkillsVR modules have learning outcomes modeled against industry standards. Learners are trained and assessed automatically in VR.


After successful completion of training and assessment in VR, job seekers can earn certifications such as a SiteSafe Foundation Passport that further aids their career journey.
