The purpose of this project was to examine what influencing factor that has had an impact on the presumed increasement of the use of networking among academics on the labour market and how it is expressed. On the basis of the influence from globalization on the labour market it can be concluded that the globalization has transformed the labour market into a market based on the organization of networks. In this new organization there is a greater emphasis on employees having social qualifications. Based on this conclusion the project examines different types of social networks among academics and how they make use of this. The analysis shows, based on the respondents statements and social capital theory, that it is the weak bridging ties that are used the most in work related contexts. They use this type of networks because their access unto informations is easier. Hereby their bridging social capital contributes to an improvement of their possibilities concerning their carrier. The most important aspect of the use of network among academics is that it improves their possibilities on the labour market. The underlying factor is that the amount of job opportunities has decreased which has led to network being a short cut to a potential job. This is related to the increasement in project employment that is seen today in the labour market based on network organization. The implication of this is that it is more important for academics to maintain and extend their network due to a more insecure job situation nowadays. Furthermore social networks are important to academics because bridging between networks can contribute to the access of knowledge which can be of relevance to their carrier. This can be seen in the aspect of unoccupied jobs or sharing informations. It is important to recognize that the empirical basis cannot contribute to general conclusion on how academics use their network due to the fact that the circumstances and assumptions for the use of networks are complex.
