The Undergraduate Research Journal


The research discussed the impact of extracurricular activities in Egyptian colleges on the job market. Two major questions in this research were: is there a difference between the extracurricular activities in the Egyptian private universities and public ones? Does it make a difference to be engaged in extracurricular activities in Egyptian public or private universities on employment? Forty-eight Egyptian graduates took part in an online survey for a quantitative research to examine their involvement in these activities and how these activities reflected on their employment. At the end of the data gathering process, interesting findings resulted from the online survey. One of these interesting findings was that extracurricular activities in public universities seem to differ from private ones. It was found that extracurricular activities in private universities were more effective than in public universities due to the funds collected for private universities. These differences would eventually affect the participants’ job employment.
