Platsannonsens dolda budskap

Abstract
In this essay I analyse vacancy ads, aiming to unveil constructions of certain groups of laborers considering elements of class, gender and ethnicity. By use of a method inspired by critical discourse analysis and theoretical frameworks including intersectionality and Bourdieu’s theory of class and capital I set out to explain how certain employers use written language to attract new employees, and often contributing to constructing a self image of the field of labor, but also of people who are defined as immigrants or of a certain class or gender.
