Abstract

We measure hiring discrimination based on gender and the applicant?s mobility, as indicated in his/her resume (car and motorcycle driving licenses mentioned or not in the CV). A correspondence testing was performed to examine access to job interviews of young management accountants living in Paris (300 job ads tested). A high mobility signal has no significant effect on access to job interviews for male applicants. However, for women, the same signal decreases the probability to receive a job interview. In a profession dominated by women, where women do have actually a higher success rate than men in access to a job interview, the mere display of a motorcycle license by a woman causes her to lose her comparative advantage over men. Everything happens as if mobility, shown in the display of a license A and B, was seen by employers as a gender attribute. A woman reporting a motorcycle license is considered by the employer as equal to man, which in this case, reduces her chances of being invited to an interview.
