Gender differences in recruitment outcomes
AbstractOur results indicate that males and females have about the same probability of being hired in a mixed pool of male and female applicants, independently of the type of vacancy. The probability of hiring a candidate of a certain sex is therefore determined by the gender composition of the pool of applicants who have selected themselves on the basis of job characteristics, hiring standards and the type of sector.
