Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth indicate that most young men and women are promoted in their jobs on the basis of performance; although a gender gap in the rate of promotion does exist, the gap was smaller in 1996 than in 1990. This article examines the role of gender in the promotion process for young men and women early in their careers. It first highlights the qualitative nature of promotions and then focuses on who gets promoted by considering the characteristics of men and women who have been promoted. Finally, the relationship between labor market conditions-in particular, unemployment rates, and employment growth in industries and occupations-and promotion is assessed.
