Source Effects in Internet‐based Screening Procedures (pages 137-140)

This research examined the relationship between two newly‐proposed source classifications (degree of interim contact and job board specificity) and two pre‐hire outcomes: candidate qualifications and job fit. Among other findings, higher interim contact was related to stronger education qualifications, and candidates resulting from occupation/industry‐specific job boards possessed, in comparison to candidates from general job boards, stronger educational qualifications, technical skills, and a higher degree of fit between their job preferences and the characteristics of the job. However, we did not observe our expected effects uniformly for all qualifications variables, and we discuss potential contributing factors and implications.
