If you’re wondering whether virtual reality has a place in recruiting, check out these Job Simulator Videos on YouTube. Job Simulator is a virtual reality game by Owlchemy Labs where gamers can use PlayStation VR, Oculus Touch or HTC Vive to simulate what it’s like to work in these jobs:

Videos of gamers simulating jobs like Office Worker, Store Clerk, Chef and Mechanic have already received more than 200 million views on YouTube since launching less than a year ago.

There is even a Job Simulator Wikipedia Profile.

This game is total tongue-in-cheek, but it shows you the potential of virtual reality. It’s not hard to imagine school career centers handing students a VR Headset to experience what it’s like to work at a McDonalds or any other job for that matter.

Here are 4 very silly videos of each of the 4 jobs that simulated in the Job Simulator game:
