Directed Search with Endogenous Search

Directed Search with Endogenous Search E¤ort. Lari Arthur Viianto y University of Alicante February 2, 2009 Abstract In this paper I develop an urn-ball game type matching model with exante identical agents and …rms. This is a directed search market structure. Agents can freely choose the amount of applications they make. Firms post vacancies, receive applications and make a single take-it-or-leave-it wage o¤er to a randomly chosen applicant. As agents make multiple applications, …rms compete for the particular applicant as in a …rst-price sealed-bid auction with an unknown number of biders. Miscoordiantion and asymmetry of information induce a mixed strategy by …rms. They make wage o¤ers as extractions from a continuous distribution, inducing wage dispersion among agents. The particular shape of the obtained wage distribution depends on the search e¤ort of agents. The expected wage can be seen as an endogenously determined bargaining power. The particular wage that an agent receives is stochastic, a combination of luck and e¤ort. The miscoordination in search e¤ort produces a negative externality on the agents side. The relation between search e¤ort and labor market tightness(understood as the vacancy/worker ratio) is not monotonic. It is positive for low values of market tightness and negative for high values.
