What is it?

This policy brief reviews a randomized evaluation that examined the short- and long-term impacts of job counseling in France among those who were, and were not, offered the programme. The study also examined whether increasing the number of counseled individuals within a community displaced people who did not receive counseling for finding jobs.

HIGHLIGHTS

Career counseling for young, college-educated job seekers in France helped them find work sooner, but this improvement came at the expense of jobs for those who did not receive counseling. It did not translate into a long-term increase in employment rates.
