JobCon 2021 is hosted in VRChat, the world’s leading platform for social engagement in virtual reality. Don’t worry, non-VR users are welcome too!
Installation varies depending on how you plan to visit JobCon. If you want to visit through a personal computer, laptop, HTC Vive, or Valve Index, check out the “PC” instructions below. If you’re using an Oculus Quest 2 headset, have a look at the “Oculus” instructions.
First, download and install Steam. You’ll need to make an account after installation.
Then, install VRChat. The program will be installed through Steam, and you can launch it from your Steam library. You’ll be prompted to either log in through your Steam account, or create a new VRChat account.
For attendees using the Oculus Quest 2, attendance couldn’t be any easier! Just install VRChat from the Oculus store.
Then, log in through your existing Oculus account, or create a new VRChat account. That’s all it takes!
Okay, so installing a bunch of new programs can be a bit of a pain. We went ahead and put together a few video tutorials for you, in case you need a helping hand.
At this point, you’re moving around the metaverse like a pro! However, you’ve also probably noticed that you’re still on a default avatar that doesn’t look much like you. If you want people to see an avatar that looks like you (and you do!) watch this video to find out how to get your own personalized character.
Now that you’ve installed VRChat, learned how to navigate the metaverse, and updated your avatar, all that’s left is to come to JobCon!
You’ll be able to join as soon as the conference opens, on September 21st.
Use this link to enter the lobby, and have a look around — if you need help, one of our staff can direct you to employer booths that might interest you.
We recommend planning your visit around the event schedule — there’s more to JobCon than just job hunting! You get free access to keynote speeches from industry leaders, VRChat world tours from renowned VR innovators, and admission to daily special events!
We also suggest following us on social media for updates leading up to the big event. We host regular events featuring industry professionals, and the best way to find out about them is through social media.
Congratulations, you’ve reached the end of the tutorial! We’re looking forward to seeing you at JobCon 2021!
