Title: The development of Comprehensive Community NOx Emissions Reduction Toolkit (CCNERT)
Author: Sung, Yong Hoon
Abstract: In this dissertation I will present and test a model linking actual applicant -interviewer demographic , human capital , and cultural capital similarity to an interviewer's recommendation to hire . Actual similarity is proposed to influence an interviewer's perceptions of similarity with an applicant . These perceptions , in turn , lead to the interviewer's perceptions of the applicant's Person -Organization (PO ) fit and the applicant's Person -Job (PJ ) fit . Two main mechanisms are proposed to mediate the relationship between an interviewer's perceptions of similarity and an interviewer's perceptions of an applicant's fit : liking and negative behavioral expectations . Lastly , both an interviewer's PO and PJ fit perceptions of an applicant are posited to influence the interviewer's recommendation to hire . A total of 118 interviewer -applicant dyads contacted through the Career Center Office at a University located in the southwestern United States participated in the study . Results partially support the model . An interviewer's perceptions of similarity with an applicant are positively related to an interviewer's fit evaluations . An interviewer's negative behavioral expectations of an applicant mediate this relationship . Furthermore , perceived similarity is positively related to an interviewer's liking of an applicant . In turn , liking is positively related to an interviewer's PO fit perceptions . However , liking does not function as a mediator between perceived similarity and fit evaluations . Finally , fit evaluations are positively related to hiring recommendations . I discuss the main implications of the study as well as strengths , limitations , and future research .
