Abstract

Public employment offices match job seekers and vacancies. The effectiveness of this matching process depends on the way these offices handle the job vacancies. This article studies the matching process by analyzing the effect of different mediation methods on the duration of job vacancies. The results suggest that intensive mediation reduces average vacancy duration, indicating that public employment offices can improve the matching process.
