It examines a range of factors highlighted by existing cross-national research on public employment in established democracies and developing states. It also emphasizes how the pre-existing networks are considered the most important factor that shape public-sector career preferences. The chapter centers on students' political preferences before they enter the labor market, providing a research design that show that democratic attitudes have virtually no bearing on career choices. It builds on the research design by using a panel study of new labor market entrants.
