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