Mixed experience corresponds to first two jobs listed on resume as being from a foreign country, and most recent (third) job listed is from Canada. The table shows coefficient estimates from regressing call back status on resume type and two time indicators for when the sampling distribution of resumes changed (i.e., adding Pakistani and Greek names) with robust standard errors. Each column shows separate regression results after selecting on the sample of Type 0 resumes and Types 1–4 resumes with the indicated ethnic backgrounds. The first row indicates the call back rate estimate for Type 0 resumes during the first period of data collection. *** Significant at the 1 percent level. ** Significant at the 5 percent level. * Significant at the 10 percent level. The callback rate among Type 1 resumes with English first names and Chinese last names in column 4 (e.g., Allen and Michelle Wang) is 12.5 percent, which is significantly different from the callback rate among those with first and last English names (e.g., John and Carrie Martin), but not significantly different from the callback rate among those with first and last Chinese names (e.g., Lei and Na Li). Many secondgeneration Chinese adopt and use an Eng...
