This project investigates a program to reduce informational frictions in the labour market. The program consists of two interventions in the labour market. First, we recommend certain companies with a high recruitment potential (as predicted by the Good Housekeeping algorithm) to selected jobseekers by email. We invite them to visit the company’s page on the Good Housekeeping website, where they can find contact information. By randomly selecting jobseekers of those chosen, we intend to measure the effect of an informational shock on the jobseekers’ search behaviour, and on their return to employment. We also randomly highlight certain companies on the Good Housekeeping search platform: this enables us to measure the effect of this promotion, which is likely to generate an additional influx of applications towards these companies.
