Some job search theorists have argued that workers will be sorted into those who use official agencies and those who use more direct methods of search. The latter group, it is argued, find employment the quickest. Investigates the extent to which certain types of unemployed youth use one such agency – the Careers Service – for job search. Poisson regression techniques are used on data relating to school‐leavers who entered the labour market in the 1979‐81 period. Although dated, the findings have clear implications for the Careers Service, and also add to the growing body of empirical research on the job search behaviour of youths.
