    Abstract

    Informal job search methods could alleviate short-term labour market difficulties of displaced workers by providing information on job opportu- nities, allowing them to signal their productivity and may mitigate wage losses through better post-displacement job matching. However if dis- placement results from reductions in demand for specific sectors/skills, the use of informal job search methods may increase the risk of job insta- bility. We examine the effect of jobs search methods on post-displacement outcomes. While informal job search methods are associated with shorter unemployment duration, and lower wage losses, they lead to increased job instability and increased risk of subsequent job displacement.
