My name is Tucker Omberg, I’m a doctoral student studying Labor Markets at George Mason University.  Unfortunately, there is no job being offered at Pareto’s Pizza, which is not a real employer.

Instead, the job posting you clicked on is part of a research project studying what determines how many applicants a job gets. I posted “job listings” in multiple cities, which linked to pages like this one, and recorded how many hits they each got. Since I’m  only looking at the number of views that this page gets, I am not collecting any personal or identifying information for this project.

If you have any questions, please email me at, call me at (804) 833-7327, or you may contact the George Mason University Institutional Review Board office at 703-993-4121 if you have questions or comments regarding your rights as a participant in the research using reference number 1380575-1. Otherwise, good luck with your job search, and have a great day
