CELPE Discussion Papers from CELPE - Centre of Labour Economics and Economic Policy, University of Salerno, Italy

Abstract: In labour market part of the coordination process involves the matching between job skills and vacancies requiring specific skills. On the side of unemployed workers, the process requires a searching activity based on the gathering of information on available vacancies, the related wages and skills. The distinction among search methods plays a significant role as to the success of individual job search. The factors characterising the methods and the individuals searching for a job influence their choice. The specific aim of this empirical analysis is to understand how individuals look for a job and, thus, how they decide to choose the search methods drawn from the set of search actions as specified in the 1993 Bank of Italy Survey.
