Les annonces d’offre d’emploi : une information publique mais ciblée. Exploitation de l’enquête Emploi (2003-2012)

According to the Labour Force Surveys (2003-2012), job ads in France are the most common way of searching for job information: nearly eight out of ten job seekers study them, nearly half of them do not answer and finally less than 7% of employees have found their job through a job ad. To analyze the functioning of this channel, the article highlights both the self-selection induced by job ads and the unmediated selection of applicants who find their jobs by answering a job ad. It appears that diploma is a selection criterion at all stages of the process, and that jobs found by ads are mostly permanent jobs, belonging to the category of intermediate professions.
