The optimal escape probability occurs at 27 days for nonworkers and 209 days (about seven months) for those who take a transitional job.
Note that this model is still consistent with notified workers having a higher probability of avoiding unemployment, since this probability consists of the escape probability at t = 0 plus the accumulated escape over the pre-displacement interval [-k, 0].
k [approximately equal to] 2Nu x " Escape probability" x 1/K.
