Who Gets the Job? First-Generation College Students' Perceptions of Employer Screening Methods
Parks-Yancy, Rochelle; Cooley, Delonia
Journal of Education for Business, v93 n1 p1-10 2018
What are first-generation college students' (FGCS) perspectives of employment screening methods? The authors investigate which methods FGCS believe are likely to cause an employer to extend a job offer and which methods yield the best pool of job applicants. Survey data were collected from undergraduate business majors. They were analyzed using means comparisons and bivariate correlation "t" tests. FGCS perceived resumes and interviews as most likely to help applicants get hired. Implications are discussed.
