Abstract

El supuesto de que los individuos sólo buscan trabajo cuando están desempleados no es muy realista. Ningún trabajador racional espera indefinidamente a encontrar el mejor de todos los empleos disponibles y, por tanto, en algunas ocasiones los ocupados también tienen incentivos para buscar. En este trabajo se analizan las características y las circunstancias laborales de los trabajadores españoles que aún estando ocupados buscan empleo, así como el efecto que tienen dichas variables sobre la intensidad con la que buscan y sobre los motivos por los que lo hacen. The assumption that workers search only while unemployed is not realistic. No rational worker waits indefinitely for an opportunity to be employed in the best of all jobs that might be available. Hence, even employed workers have incentives to continue the search. In this paper we analyse employed searchers characteristics in Spain and determine the effect of personal, household and job characteristics on their search intensity and on their reason for searching.
