Technology-enhanced learning environments are designed to help users practise social skills. In this paper, we present and evaluate a virtual job interview training game which has been adapted to the special requirements of young people with low chances on the job market. The evaluation spanned three days, during which we compared the technology-enhanced training with a traditional learning method usually practised in schools, i.e. reading a job interview guide. The results are promising as professional career counsellors rated the pupils who trained with the system significantly better than those who learned with the traditional method.
