Purpose - The purpose of this study was to examine how job seekers’ spec influence their actual employment especially focusing on the differentiating effects of applicants’ specs depending on whether general or decent job employment. Design/methodology/approach - This study conducted analyses on 54,443 samples that incorporated data from the Graduates Occupational Mobility Survey for three years (2017-2019) collected by the Korea Employment Information Service. The linear probability model and logit model were used to examine the research questions. Findings - The results analyzed with the hierarchical regression model showed that most job seekers’ specs were statistically significant in predicting employment status. Interestingly, there is a difference between the factors predicting employment for a general job and a decent job. This study suggests academic and practical implications for future research in the selection/ recruitment field by clarifying the critical factors to influence applicants’ employment. Research implications or Originality The results of this study follow the screening hypothesis which explains that the applicants’ specs have significant impacts on actual employment. Also, the dual labor market theory, which explains that applicants’ specs differently affect actual employment between general and decent jobs, was reaffirmed.
