This text presents an original exploration of the French Ofer survey (Offre d'emploi et recrutement, 2005) on the recruitment practices of firms. The aim is to understand how firms organize their selection processes and how they use screening methods to assess the applicants' quality. We show that it has an impact on the profiles of those hired. First, descriptive statistics allow us to measure the variety (in quantity and quality) of selection methods and processes according to: i) occupations and skills, ii) firms size and constraints of coordination, and iii) recruitment channels. In the second part of the text, we reduce to 7 indicators the characterization of selection processes, and we obtain a typology of assessments operated by firms: standard, streamlined, contextual and formalized. Ceteris paribus, we notice that different types of assessments favour particular profiles. The most formalized assessments penalize people older than 50 or without diplomas.
