Capstone Projects

Final Mock Interview

AllSumJobs HR experts review a users resume and host a one-on-one mock interview to test users skills. We ask hard-hitting questions about their experience and offer suggestions for improvements when they head to the industry. This capstone is recommended for enrollees without current employment at a senior care facility.

VR Caregiving Scenarios

We teamed up with folks in the VR industry to co-produce a VR training simulation to build and test users in difficult care giving scenarios. From living life as an elderly patient, to handling medications and communicating with teammates, and even to tackling grief when a patient passes on. This capstone experience is planned for late 2022 with a demo expected by early 2021.
