Trial Title Advice and Job Search Advice, Time Preferences, Social Norms, and Job Search

Relatedly, we will examine the impact of their first and second-order beliefs about particular social norms. We aim to understand whether giving or receiving advice affects the job search behavior of soon-to-be university graduates and their subsequent labor market outcomes. Relatedly, we will examine the impact of their first and second-order beliefs about particular social norms. We run a follow-up survey to study the stability of time preferences and social beliefs, demand for social information as it relates to labor market decisions, and the effect of past experience with MERS on current pandemic behavior.

Experimental Design (Public) There will be a control arm, a treatment arm in which the subjects give advice about best job search practices, and another treatment arm in which the subjects receive advice on the same job search topics. We will also measure individual time preferences using experimental and survey methods. There will be a control arm, a treatment arm in which the subjects give advice about best job search practices, and another treatment arm in which the subjects receive advice on the same job search topics. We will also measure individual time preferences using experimental and survey methods. In the follow-up survey, we repeat these time preference measures, some of whom will answer within the Ramadan period. We also elicit their demand for information about labor market social norms that was collected from the first survey.
