Constrained Sequential Search

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Roberto Bonilla Trejos, Dr Francis Kiraly



We look at the optimal sequential job search strategy of an individual who faces a threshold wage constraint. We consider a model with two inter-linked frictional markets where obtaining a wage in the labour market is a pre-condition for entry in a second market. We fully characterise the reservation wage function and point out an interesting and robust non-monotonicity property.
