Vacancies and the Recruitment of New Employees
Little is known about the search strategy that employers use in their efforts to fill job vacancies. In this article, the authors analyze unique micro data to study this search strategy. They conclude that almost all vacancies are filled from a pool of applicants that is formed shortly after the posting of the vacancy. Hence, vacancy durations should be interpreted as selection periods and not as search periods for applicants. Copyright 1992 by University of Chicago Press.
