Using a unique Australian data set which contains information on both accepted and rejected job offers, Deborah Cobb-Clark, Paul Frijters and Guyonne Kalb investigate whether job offers arrive more frequently for those in employment than for those in unemployment. Their results reveal that, across the wage range, individuals are about equally likely to obtain a job offer in employment as in unemployment.
