I understand the foundation of SharePoint but there is one thing that I can't find enough answer from my question.

What good examples are there, where a SharePoint project is used in a real business? One concrete example is to create a HR project to review the candidate's profile and other one is to create a survey.

A good example is sharing information, sharepoint does good at that... i work for a company called eshare and we develop customised sharepoint portal for our clients, mainly for boards of directors where the receptionist or in meetings you can store your minutes of meetings (small part of a complex product). This allows all users who have access to these documents to read them before the meeting to prepare themselfs and to read the outcome afterwards. This is the only good example i could use as i work for them but there are many others that you could see online.

You could do either intranet or extranet. eShare is extranet and is a hosted solution by eshare at a dedicated server for more detailed info on eshare (website is also made using sharepoint ;) )as for other examples you could easily search on google :)

hope it explains your question
