Understanding of the world’s myriad of careers is a great platform for virtual reality. Students may surround themselves with the unique work environments of any possible career and try aspects of that work as a means of getting a deeper understanding of the positives and negatives of careers before they make the education choice, take the student loans out and discover years later that aspects of that career were not well suited for them.
