Often when you apply for an open Job you put a lot of effort an time into the application. Especally for higher Jobs like those of teachers, it can be hours of work to prepare the application, the class materials and so on. And often enough you don't get any feedback. Most of the times you don't even know your application got rejected, until you see someone else having the job. this is discouraging to say the least.
We watched a lot of palyers losing interest in the site alltogether, simply because of not getting any feedback to such efforts. Another Thing that drives players with hiogh amibitions to inactivity is, that they feel like they cant get anywhere, if they don't know the right people, to support their applications.
So the idea would be to have an own system (like the homework-system) where you post your Job-application (as anonym as the Homework can be) and it HAS to get marked as declined or accepted with a little feedback in the textbox. So players get any kind or reaction out of it and don't feel flatly ignored or put down in favor for someones connections. At least they know their application got read and not just vanished in thin air - to ease the frustration level.
