Report

Description

One important and under-researched aspect of labour market policy is the extent to which policy interventions are effective in modifying job search behaviour. Furthermore, there is little extant research on whether certain job search behaviours lead to labour market success. Matthew Gray and Boyd Hunter's analysis uses the only large-scale longitudinal survey of Indigenous Australians to examine the effects of job search behaviour. One major finding is that the introduction of the Job Search Diary during the survey period was effective in increasing search intensity - but this increase in intensity did not result in increased employment rates.
