Understanding the Information Seeking Behavior and Digital Skills of Refugee Migrants during the Job Seeking Process

The proposed study examines the information seeking behavior of refugee migrants in Germany while pursuing a job, a training position, or following an educational path on the Internet. Competencies of refugees are positioned on the digital skill scale and analyzed how they approach information-seeking tasks with different difficulty levels on the Internet. The study triangulates quantitative and qualitative methods and contributes to a better understanding of the varying degrees of digital skills of migrant refugees that can be used to design targeted courses and curricula that address online deficits. This will enable refugees to benefit from the many opportunities that arise through the Internet and its services, improving chances for labor market integration.
