This chapter discusses in detail the number of ways that social resources can affect a person's life chances. It focuses on a life-course perspective and copies part of the earlier research on access. It then considers a transition from ascribed to achieved social capital. Finally, the chapter studies people who applied for a job through the help of a contact person but failed to get the job.

Keywords:   social resources, life chances, life-course perspective, ascribed social capital, achieved social capital, contact person
