Internet Job Search / Cuts Unemployment Duration by 25%

“While the Internet has been found to reduce trading frictions in a number of other markets, existing research has failed to detect such an effect in the labor market” write Peter Kuhn and Hani Mansour in Is Internet Job Search Still Ineffective? on Choosen excerpts by Job Market Monitor to follow)

This finding is robust to controls for workers’ Armed Forces Qualification Test scores and detailed indicators of Internet access. IJS appears to be most effective in reducing unemployment durations when used to contact friends and relatives, to send out resumes or fill out applications, and also to look at ads. We detect no effect of IJS on wage growth between jobs.”
