Abstract

We construct a database from the rst 2011 wave of the Portuguese Labor Force Survey and analyze the transitions between labor market states and job search methods during six quarters. In Portugal, the individuals who use more formal job search methods are more likely to get a stable state of employment, while informal contacts, private agencies or newspaper adverts tend to lead to a permanent state of job seeking.
