Gender-targeted job ads in the recruitment process: evidence from China

ACDE Seminar

The study documents how explicit employer requests for applicants of a particular gender enter the recruitment process on a Chinese job board. It finds that 19 out of 20 callbacks to jobs are of the requested gender. Mostly, this is because application pools to those jobs are highly segregated, but men and women who apply to ads requesting the ‘other’ gender also experience lower callback rates than other applicants.
