Professors at the Kellogg School of Management researched how class and gender affect getting interviews for internships at top law firms. Using the resume audit method (identical resumes except for the first names – James or Julia in this case), they confirmed that the firms preferred applicants from the higher, more wealthy echelons of society as indicated by extracurricular activities, i.e., polo versus country music. But that preference applied only to men. In subsequent interviews, the researchers learned that upper class women are passed over because of being perceived as the least committed segment of the pool and subject to “flight risk” to raise families. Their conclusions: “ditch” the extracurricular activities and accept only first name initials on resumes.
