Abstract: 
Anfang 2004 trat der in der sogenannten Hartz-III-Reform beschlossene Umbau der Vermittlungstätigkeit der öffentlichen Arbeitsverwaltung in Kraft. Ziel war es, die Arbeitslosigkeit durch eine schnellere Jobvermittlung zu senken. Zwar nahm die Arbeitslosigkeit seitdem tatsächlich ab, der Autor kommt in seiner Bilanz nach mehr als zehn Jahren aber zu dem Ergebnis, dass trotz erheblichen Personalaufbaus bei der Bundesagentur für Arbeit eine effektivere Vermittlung in den Arbeitsmarkt nicht gelungen ist.
Abstract (Translated): 
An important component of German labour market reforms, implemented over ten years ago, was the remodelling of the Public Employment Service. Its aim was to reduce unemployment with improved and faster job placement. Although the number of employees at the Public Employment Service has increased sharply, this aim has not yet been achieved. The share of individuals who were no longer unemployed because they had taken up employment was no higher after the reform than it was before. Only a small number of unemployed found a job with the help of the Public Employment Service, and that number has not increased over time. Moreover, the share of the longterm unemployed remains virtually unchanged.
