Abstract

This paper aims at introducing the plurality of search methods in a job search model with endogenous intensity. Search methods are integrated through a function of information production, which influences both the offer rate and search costs. The equilibrium proprieties of the model lead to an indeterminate effect of the information produced by search methods use on the exit rate from unemployment. The microeconometric estimation of the structural model allows us to deal with this ambiguity. The method used takes into account the selection rule of search channels, their interdependence and the type of job found. Results highlight a different impact of the production of information on unemployment spells according to the type of job found. Besides, search methods have a discriminating effect on unemployment duration.
