Getting a Job: A Study of Contacts
and Careers by Mark Granovetter
The Science Of Labor Markets
This classic study of how 282 men in the United States found their jobs not
only proves its not what you know but who you know, but also
demonstrates how social activity influences labor markets. Examining the
link between job contacts and social structure, Granovetter recognizes
networking as the crucial link between economists studies of labor mobility
and more focused studies of an individuals motivation to find work. This
second edition is updated with a new Afterword and includes Granovetters
influential article Economic Action and Social Structure: The Problems of
Personal Review: Getting a Job: A Study of Contacts and
Careers by Mark Granovetter
Mark Granovetter reveals how people make economic decisions and take
economic actions based on the social structure they are embedded in. We
are not totally rational beings as the old economists would have us believe
-- we are social beings -- influenced by, and influencing those around us.
It is how we vote, how we dress, how we think, what careers we pursue
and what products we buy. Yet, those immediately around us may not be
very useful in helping us find a job! Our close associates know what we
know at the same time we know it! Therefore, they are not very useful for
telling us something new -- like where a job opening is. To find out about
jobs, we don't already know about, we need to go outside of our immediate
social circle to connect to people we don't see very often any more[old
friends, college chums, old army buddies, former co-workers, old sorority
sisters]. They now live in different social circles than we do. These social
circles have information not available in our social circle -- some of the info
is about job openings.This classic book is still highly relevant and useful
after 30 years! The book is somewhat `academic' in parts, but is so full of
`gems' that it is worth slogging through the research numbers. Every
college graduate should read this book and keep it handy till they retire.
