The first study looked at the students, teachers and parents’ attitudes towards online home work and its impact in the school education perspective, with focus on its positive effect on student performance and school grades. The second study conducted focused on the online job applicants, and also its effects on their confidence and satisfaction. The third study focused on the online job applicants and their experiences in the job interviews and the quality of their interviews as well as their opinions about the job prospect and the salary offered by employers.
Each study was performed on two main groups of subjects; the students who applied for the online jobs and the job seekers themselves. In each study, the main goal was to determine whether there were any significant differences between the two groups in the kind of response provided by both the students and the job applicants. To this end, each study had different sets of data and different set of criteria used for measuring the results. Each of the studies involved a specific set of research questions that dealt with the application and the job candidates’ responses. The aim of the research was to determine whether there are any differences between the two groups of subjects, in terms of their responses and the quality of responses received from the job candidates.
Students’ responses to the job applications made for them by the employers were analyzed using Questionnaires regarding the application process. The same type of Questionnaire was also used by the school education faculty, to determine the quality of the interviews conducted on students. A secondary objective of this project was to determine whether the students and the job candidates received similar or different number of positive responses in relation to the application process. This secondary objective was not achieved because the students showed no significant difference in their responses, even after answering some of the same questions in different ways.
The next study focused on the students’ responses to the job seekers. The same type of Questionnaire was used by the school education faculty to determine the quality of the interviews conducted on the students. Again, the job seekers were also the subject of this study and their responses were compared with the responses of the students in order to determine whether they received different or similar level of positive responses. in comparison to the responses of the students. The results showed that the job seekers and the students did receive positive responses in a similar level and this difference was found to be statistically significant. In addition to this finding, there was also a slight difference in the response rates of the applicants and the job seekers. These findings showed that the students’ positive responses were influenced by the job hunters, which supports the idea that the students’ answers were affected by the job hunters’ personality as well as their qualifications.
Finally, the students’ responses to the home work job applicants were analyzed by asking them to provide answers to specific questionnaires. This way, the students’ answers were compared with the job seekers’ responses, and the same type of Questionnaire was used in determining the quality of the job seekers’ responses. With respect to the students’ responses, the main results showed that the students’ responses were highly influenced by the job seekers and that the job seekers did not show any significant difference in their responses to the job hunters as compared to the responses of the students.
It has been observed that online job applicants and the job seekers show a similar level of positive responses, and these results confirm the positive impact of online work on both of these groups. However, the job seekers showed more positive results than the students in terms of the number of positive responses.
