Horizontal and Vertical Mobility in Organizations.
DiPrete, Thomas A.
Administrative Science Quarterly, v32 n3 p422-44 Sep 1987

Analyzing vacancy filling in four federal government bureaus, this paper argues that career paths are dependent on certain occupational and organizational characteristics. Includes 41 references.
