Роль неформальных социальных связей при трудоустройстве студентов и выпускников
Social ties seem to play a significant role in the employment practices, including students and graduates, who are most vulnerable categories of employees. This study analyzes significance of informal social ties in the process of job searching for students and graduates. We also investigate the influence of this kind of employment on the objective and subjective criteria of adaptation on the labor market. The study is based on the data of Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS-HSE). A statistically significant impact of employment by using friends on the subjective indicators (such as job satisfaction) was found. On the other hand, there are no connections between employment by using friends and objective indicators of adaptation on the labor market.
