Unemployable

Describing a person who is unable to find a job, especially one that suits his/her skill set. A person may be unemployable due to personal reasons (for example, he may interview poorly or he may be subject to racial or age discrimination). However, the term may also refer to a person whose skill set has become obsolete. Unemployable persons often must retrain to be able to find jobs in the future, though doing so is often very difficult.
