Abstract
The paper analyses, how a low level of cultural distance and a strong social and cultural integration affects second-generation immigrants’ labour market chances. We address this question by means of a survey experiment carried out with human resources professionals in Switzerland. First, we analyse whether job applicants are evaluated more negatively if their parents stem from a country perceived to be culturally more distant from the host country and
whether second-generation applicants whose profile conveys a strong attachment to their culture of origin
(language) and engaging in social activities within their community, are evaluated more negatively by prospective employers.
