    Abstract

    (Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se emplean datos de panel de Venezuela recabados recientemente correspondientes al período de 1994 a 2002 para analizar tres cuestiones básicas: la primera tiene que ver con la influencia de las características individuales y la experiencia previa en el mercado laboral en la elección de métodos de búsqueda distintos. La segunda se refiere a la eficacia de diversos métodos de búsqueda para salir del desempleo y se controlan las características individuales y de los empleos anteriores. Por último, la tercera cuestión se relaciona con la situación laboral previa, mediante el análisis de la importancia relativa del método de búsqueda y la situación laboral anterior, para determinar la probabilidad de conseguir empleo o quedar fuera de la fuerza laboral. Concluimos que la situación laboral anterior es un factor principal que determina si se pasa a una situación de empleo y que el uso de agencias de empleo hace aumentar la probabilidad de ese paso en cada situación laboral.
