Atkinson J, Dolan M, Pettigrew N, Hyndley K | Report 260 | Institute for Employment Studies | Dec 1993

Three elements determine jobsearch success: employer behaviour, individual behaviour and the external labour market.

This study looks at the context within which unemployed people conduct their search for work, identifies the characteristics of good jobsearch practice as well as the at-risk groups least likely to adopt them. It offers constructive and practical guidance.
