Occupational Homophily and the Mechanism of Mobilized Social Capital in Labour Market of Young Adults: Evidence from 2010 TEPS-B in Taiwan
labor market of young adults
|Issue Date: ||2019-09-05 17:07:16 (UTC+8)|
Research on mobilized social capital and job searching in the labor market of young adults was not abundant. This study attempts to discuss with the previous literature and proposes three research questions, which are analyzed and discussed in three chapters respectively. First of all, in the labor market of young adults, whether nonsearchers, which means people getting their jobs without the process of job searching, will attain a better status than those searching jobs through other methods? Secondly, backing to the origin of Nan Lin’s social resources theory, we find a tie between the referrer and the hiring company ignored by many studies but important. Furthermore, this study tries to bring this missing link into the debate of Lin’s and Mouw’s argument on the effect of occupational homophily in mobilized social capital framework to clarify the relevant mechanism. Besides, this study provides two new possible mechanisms of occupational homophily: double occupational homophily and newborn occupational homophily. Thirdly, for young adults with only one job experience searching jobs, how do the family resources influence young people’s status attainment? This study uses the “Taiwan Education Panel Survey and Beyond” and “Taiwan Education Panel Survey” to analyze and discuss the questions mentioned above. This study discovers: (1) Getting the job through nonsearch can bring a higher socioeconomic status than the informal job search in the young labor market. (2) In the condition of newborn occupational homophily between job seeker and job contact, job contact with the high-status and direct relation with company employer can help the referral get a better socioeconomic status. However, the condition of newborn occupational homophily, job contact with the high-status and direct relation with company employer cannot facilitate a better job. (3) For those young adults with only one job experience, they can find a higher status contact through a kinship tie than others tie, and then utilize the occupational homophily with the referrer to increase their own socioeconomic status.
