Traditionally, the infrastructure of Public Employment Service(PES) was relatively weak in Korea and couldn't play a key role in labor market. But the unprecedented unemployment, which was followed by the 1997 financial crisis, has led the rapid growth of PES. This paper analyzed the performance and effectiveness of Korean PESs in recent years and looked into the realities of job matching and counselling service through the nation-wide survey which was done during March 20-25, 2000.
According to our analysis, the performance has been greatly improved after the 1997 fianacial crisis. The numbers of job seekers using PESs, job vacancies posted, job referrals, those who were employed through PES's job matching service, have greatly increased from 1997 to 1999. As a result, the effectiveness of the Korean PESs has been imporved drastically. In comparison with several advanced countries' PES, some indicators related with the PES's sharing in job market and the effectiveness of PES, showed that the performance and effectiveness of Korean PES has reached more or less those of the average level of advanced countries' PES in the early 1990s.
