Work-School Conflict and Work-School Enrichment Study

Increasing numbers of students have entered the workforce while attending college as a result of the steadily rising expenditure of tuition and books. Involvement in school and work simultaneously may create competing demands and result in work interfering with school (i.e., work-school conflict; WSC). On the other hand, it is also possible that work experiences improve the quality of school experiences (i.e., work-school enrichment, WSE). In the current study, we examined how personality and motivational factors may be related to WSC and WSE and in turn, how WSC and WSE influence school outcomes (i.e., school performance, school satisfaction) and work outcomes (i.e., job performance, job satisfaction). Results from a survey of Brockport students will be discussed.
