Abstract

This paper employs the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey to carry out the empirical analysis of the job search channels choice on the Russian labor market from 1994 till 2001. The econometric estimations of the job search channels choice are based on the modified model of job search with build-in budget and time constraints as model parameters. In this paper the typology of search strategies is represented. Within the framework of the research it has been also investigated how different socio-demographic and economic parameters influence the search strategy choice. We also studied the search intensity, i.e. the choice of the number of the job search channels. Our results confirm that occupation, budget constraints, demographic and ethnic characteristics, period of non-employment and local labor market characteristics influence significantly the choice of search channels. Dependence of job search efficiency on the selected search strategy is also represented in the paper. Our conclusion is that the most efficient strategies employ social networks and large number of channels.
