This paper empirically examines three propositions which are derived from the thesis of relational capital, particularly the relationship between social resources and occupation attained in Spain. One of them is a cross-national comparison. A social survey data set from Spain was used. Data are compared with Lin et al. and Graaf and Flap studies for the U.S. and the Netherlands respectively. Social resources are defined as social ties of those persons who are directly or indirectly linked to the individual. Our findings confirm previous major works except for the finding that in Spain greater social resources does not lead to better jobs than in the U.S. and the Netherlands.
