Long-Term Unemployed

Long-Term Unemployed

Persons who have been unemployed for an extended period of time. Measurements of long-term unemployment vary, but generally it is thought to be experienced by those who are without work for six months to a year or longer. Long-term unemployed persons may experience added difficulty in finding new jobs due to the length of the gap in their resumes, or, in some industries, because their skills quickly become obsolete. In some jurisdictions, the long-term unemployed may not be eligible for unemployment benefits.
