  • The “Yes Moments”: Understanding students’ sense of achievement during on the job training program   Order a copy of this article
    by Nana Trianasari, Pamela Arumynathan 
    Abstract: Addressing the lack of empirical studies on the students experiences during the on-the-job training (OJT) program, this study explored situations that triggered students sense of achievement. Data were collected using semi structured interviews from 56 students and were analysed using a qualitative approach. The findings suggest four critical yes moments that lead to a sense of achievement: 1) being trusted; 2) the ability to accomplish a task; 3) being given a compliment; 4) the ability to solve a problem. The significance of the study lies in its contribution to the existing body of knowledge in tourism and hospitality education in terms of understanding students learning behaviour. Also, the study is substantial for its insightful contributions to potentially improve the employability of students and in the long run, meet the supply and demand of labour in the hotel industry. The interpretations of the findings, implications, and directions for future are discussed.

    Abstract: Electric train services (ETS) is the first high-speed intercity train system in Malaysia that significantly contributed to the nation economy and tourism industry. This study examined the impacts of service quality of ETS towards tourist satisfaction and loyalty. Data were generated through a self-administered survey. A total of 360 responses from tourists who travelled to and fro Kuala Lumpur Sentral and Padang Besar, Malaysia was collected and were subjected to technical analysis of partial least square-structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). This study demonstrated the significant impact of service quality towards tourist satisfaction and loyalty toward ETS. Finally, valuable recommendations are presented.
