economics of online recruitment, the
AbstractOnline recruitment describes hiring workers who were initially selected via the Internet. The practice is now widespread, with a majority of US jobseekers undertaking some online job search activity. The online intermediaries that allow employers and employees to connect with each other, leading to online recruitment, vary in scope. They range from websites that provide information about workers or openings, thereby facilitating search (â€˜job boardsâ€™ or â€˜job search enginesâ€™) to websites that both provide information and enable employers and employees to interact online during the hiring process (â€˜online labour marketsâ€™). A subset of online labour markets also provides an infrastructure that allows for online management of the work process and payment systems.
