The number of findings indicated that social networks positively affect employment conditions of young workers. This kind of comment reveals that the positive effect is limited to middle-class youth. However, in this study, I will claim that social capital is an independent resource and must be seen as specific to working-class strategies. I used Turkish household labor survey covering paid employment in youth employment and I will test two hypotheses on the influence of social networks. The first one asserts that social networks commonly used by working-class and middle-class youth tend to enhance cultural capital resources. The second hypothesis claims that social networks are useful for obtaining the benefits of labor markets via private large-scale industrial employment for working-class youth; on the contrary, middle-class youth try to reach these benefits through managerial career paths. After the analysis, findings confirm that both hypotheses are valid.
