Matching with Multiple Applications
AbstractWe analyze the implications of multiple applications by job seekers for the microfoundations of the matching function. We emphasize a coordination failure caused by multiple applications, namely, that firms can waste resources processing applicants who are ultimately hired elsewhere. This discussion paper resulted in a publication in 'Economics Letters' , 2003, 78(1), 67-70.
