Users of online job search tools interact with result pages in three different ways: via impressions, via clicks, and via applications. We investigate the relationship between these three kinds of interaction using logs provided by, an Australian-based job search service. Our focus is on understanding the extent to which the three interaction types can be used to predict each other. In particular we examine models for inferring impressions from clicks, thereby providing system designers with new options for evaluating search result pages.
