Abstract
Artykuł przedstawia wyniki eksperymentu korespondencyjnego, którego celem było zbadanie podejścia i preferencji polskich pracodawców podczas rekrutacji młodych pracowników. W tym celu wyselekcjonowano 240 ogłoszeń o pracę i w odpowiedzi na nie wysłano po cztery aplikacje - dwóch kobiet i dwóch mężczyzn - różniące się stażem zawodowym i jakością ukończonych uczelni. Kandydaci ze stażem pracy wynoszącym około dwóch lat i dyplomem uczelni uznawanej za mniej prestiżową mieli, ceteris paribus, o około 0,06 wyższe szanse, by otrzymać zaproszenie na rozmowę kwalifikacyjną niż ich rówieśnicy z krótszym doświadczeniem zawodowym, ale z dyplomami czołowych uczelni w Polsce lub za granicą. Ponadto takim kandydatom znacznie częściej oferowano zaproszenie do dalszej rekrutacji w takich branżach, jak rachunkowość i finanse niż np. zarządzanie zasobami ludzkimi czy marketing. Eksperyment nie potwierdził dyskryminacji płciowej w badanym segmencie rynku. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The article presents the results of a field experiment - correspondence test - conducted to investigate the attitude and preferences of Polish employers in recruiting a young worker. For this purpose, 240 job advertisements were selected, in response to which the set of 4 applications - 2 women and 2 men - differing in the length of professional experience and quality of completed college - were sent. Applicants who with about 2 years work experience had and Master diploma from the less prestigious University, ceteris paribus, about 6 percent higher chance to receive a callback than their peers whose professional experience were shorter, but they obtained the diploma from leading university in Poland or abroad. Moreover, the experience was much more than the quality of education important for employers in areas such as accounting and finance, than for example the HR or marketing. The experiment did not confirm the gender discrimination in the test market segment. (original abstract)
