School, Work, and Connections Bleg
By Bryan Caplan
I’m looking for research on the extent to which people make useful career connections in school – high school, college, grad school, whatever. My sense is that the economy is so big and diverse that people rarely (a) end up working with their former schoolmates, or (b) get jobs through their teachers or professors, but I’m having trouble finding evidence one way or the other.
If you know of anything I should read, please tell me in the comments.
