  1. Notes: The dependent variable is an indicator variable that takes the value one if the applicant was invited to a job interview and zero otherwise. The reported standard errors (in brackets) are clustered at the job advertisement level. ***, **, and * denote the 1, 5 and 10 percent significance levels, respectively.
