This usage-based analysis of job ads published in two Dutch job ad magazines, compares the features underlying the choice for English therein at both macro- and micro-analyses-levels. Findings show a huge difference in the basic English proportion at both levels, but also a good deal of resemblances in English distribution when focusing on the particular parameters underlying code choice.
