The Impact of Employers' Recruitment Behaviour on the Allocation of Vacant Jobs to Unemployed Job Seekers
AbstractThis paper is focused on the allocation of vacant jobs to job seekers from a demand side perspective by studying the recruitment behavior of employers. A model is developed to analyze the role of search and selection methods of employers as determinants of the probability that an unemployed person will be hired for a certain type of job. In an empirical application for the Dutch labor market, we have examined the effect of employer's recruitment behavior on the allocation of vacant jobs to employed, unemployed, and school-leaving job seekers. We find that job requirements for the applicants with respect to work experience are the most important determinant of the probability that an unemployed person will be selected to fill a vacant job. In addition, the use of advertisements by employers for jobs requiring high skill levels does also have a significant effect.
