So thanks again to Freakonomics for pointing me to a great article. Edgar Johns of JobApp Network Inc., has found that for his company there are significant differences between white and minority applicants over the phone versus the internet. They discuss that one cause of this could be access to the internet. They also found similar patterns for younger and older applicants. I would use this to argue that maybe it is not technology access, but technology savvy that leads an applicant to internet over phone applications. This is a large problem as companies move toward internet-only based applications, as I know the UCs are (if they haven’t already).
