Race and Network in the Job Search Process

  • IRLE Director's Room 2521 Channing Way Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)

David Pedulla, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Stanford University, will discuss his detailed research data on both job applications and job offers, which provide the unique ability to adjudicate between these processes. This data provides evidence that although blacks and whites utilize their networks at similar rates, these methods are less likely to lead to job offers for African-Americans.

The talk will include O-Lab faculty Conrad Miller and Haas faculty Laura Kray as discussants and is co-sponsored by the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment.
