This dissertation consists of three essays on the role that subjective evaluation plays in hiring markets. The first chapter looks at the part subjectivity plays in determining which workers match with which firms. The second chapter looks at how providing hiring managers with subjective information about a job applicant changes managers’ evaluations. Finally, the third chapter devises a method to determine the level of disagreement between managers in how they interpret a subjective piece of information.
