Due to a tight labour market, some western organisations are now looking for new ways to attract highly qualified applicants. This paper examines the influence of the corporate image and the company employment image on the application intentions of graduate business students. We begin by investigating the dimensional composition of these images, both by literature search and empirically. Second, we determine their influence on the application intentions. The intermediary role of information use will also receive attention. Our results show that both types of images have independent significant positive effects on the intentions to apply and are thus important and valuable tools on the labour market, although strongly different.
