The Impact of an Online Job Fair: Experimental Evidence from Bangladesh
SHARE THIS PAGE
The study found that there was no effect on employment probability since more than 90% of job offers generated were rejected. Jobseekers learned about market conditions at the fair. This led jobseekers to lower their labor market expectations and reservation wages. As a result, jobseekers who had been employed kept their jobs longer even if jobs did not match their skills. Those initially unemployed ended up with lower employment probabilities and lower skill-match quality.
