  1. Notes: Clustered standard errrors in parenthesis. Estimates based on a parametric cross-sectional estimator. Internet-based search outcome is captured for the full sample, and it is defined as 1 for those who have used the Internet within the three months of labor-market intermediation, 0 otherwise. Traditional job search and job expectations outcomes are captured only for the unemployed at the time of the follow-up interview. Control covariates are the same as those included in Table 4. ***statistically significant at 1%, **statistically significant at 5%, *statistically significant at 10%.
