Abstract: Due to heterogeneity in the labour market, the job matching process is hindered by asymmetric information between job seekers and employers. In the literature, it is proposed this asymmetry can be alleviated by creating matches on the basis of two types of information: high and low bandwidth data, representing hard (e.g. person-job fit) and easy to verify (e.g. educational background) information. This information could be distributed by Career Portfolios. However, it is unclear what information is relevant in the recruitment process. This is explored in this study, by gathering recruiter and student perspectives on the desirability of specific high and low bandwidth types of information. Results show that students and recruiters are in partial agreement about the relevance of both types of information: recruiters value high bandwidth data more highly than students.
