Costly Interviews
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Economics.
2010 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Interviewing in professional labor markets is a costly process for

.rms. Moreover, poor screening can have a persistent negative impact

on .rms.bottom lines and candidates. careers. In a simple dynamic

model where .rms can pay a cost to interview applicants who have pri-

vate information about their own ability, potentially large ine¢ ciencies

arise from information-based unemployment, where able workers are

rejected by .rms because of their lack of o¤ers in previous interviews.

This e¤ect may make the market less e¢ cient than random matching.

We show that e¢ ciency can be achieved using either a mechanism with

transfers or one without transfers.
