Blurb/Shorttext:
The purpose of the study described in the following book was to find an answer to the question whether employers differentiate applicants on the basis of the place where they live. Employers might believe that applicants who would need to commute from remote place to the office might be often late, tired, willing to look for another position closer to their home and not as motivated to work as their possible coworkers who would not need to spend additional hours commuting. In such a case commuting time would be perceived as a proxy observable for employer – in the moment of application employer cannot determine which applicant will be more productive, punctual, dedicated to the company. The hypothesis was checked in the field experiment where fictional resumes were sent to employers and the callback rate was recorded.
