The aim of this thesis is to study a job-searching process and elements that affects it. The elements I have focused on are gender, class and social network. The study is based on interviews and a survey study with students from the educational program of Social work (Socialomsorgsutbildningen), that graduated 3 years ago. Through the survey I have examined their social-background and their job-searching process. The interviews are the main focus in the study. Several of the informants came from working-class homes, and that could be one of the reasons why the informants chose an educational program that has low academic status. The majority of the students on the education program were female. In the employment process the male informants felt that their gender/sex gave them an advantage entering the labour-market. The social network, especially the informal network, was the most important part of their job-seeking process.
