Cultural Fit in Elite Firms Hiring Process Discussion Questions – Assignment Help

I need help with a Sociology question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

In your memo, please answer the following questions.

1) In Rivera’s study, what criteria do elite firms use to hire their employees?

2) Do the criteria promote meritocracy (reward systems based on one’s ability and achievement) or inequality (reward system based on privilege and discrimination)? Explain your position with evidence from the article.

**When you include direct quotes or rephrase specific ideas from the article, please indicate the specific page number(s) where you can find the quotes/ideas in parenthesis**

Your memo will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

1) In response to the first question, the memo demonstrates a good understanding of the key ideas in the reading (3pts).

2) In response to the second question, the memo states a position (1pt) and offers an explanation of the position (3 pts) using appropriate evidence from the article (2 pts).

3) Appropriate heading and file name (1pt).
