Abstract

Copyright held by the author(s). This paper presents an initial comparison of user behavior in job, talent, and web search using query and click logs from a popular employment marketplace. The observations suggest that the understanding of users’ search behavior in this scenario is still at its infancy and that some of the assumptions made in general web search may not hold true.
