What is the best website for recruiting?

In the context of an increasing use of online search for candidates/jobs, our analysis aims to characterize the French employers who look for candidates via the Internet, and among those who recruit via this channel, the websites they use according to the type of vacancies they wish to fill.

Do employers form higher-quality matches at a lower cost when they hire via websites such as corporate websites, specialized sites, generalist sites, or the site of the public employment service (PES)?

Based on a survey of French establishments, we find that employers who rely on the Internet to look for candidates employ more search channels and selection methods.

Of Internet users, the employers who recruit via the PES website consider their match to be less satisfying, whereas those who hire via the company website obtain better matches. There is no relationship between the vacancy duration and the recruitment channel.
