Many unemployed folks usually don’t understand why they’ve been out of work for so long. Their obvious scape goat is the economy and the other billion job seekers that are their competition. This excuse is completely warranted, but I can’t let them off the hook so easy. It’s just not happening.

Here are 6 reasons why you most likely haven’t found a job yet:

As one poster elegantly put it, advice from someone getting paid to give you advice. Very clever. Do we know anything about him? What are his creds. Should people even think about taking advice from him?

I know, let's email him and tell him to GET A JOB!!!

He's doing what the media and other blogging job sites say we all should do......... create our own job. Personally I couldn't do it, it would feel to much like ripping off people in trouble for my own monetary gain.

" Republican Rep. Robin Vos of Burlington, the co-chairman of the Joint Committee on Finance, is among legislators who think extending unemployment benefits gives the unemployed a reason not to take low-paying work and search for better-paying jobs. "

I wonder what Rep Robin Vos would do if he had no income, would he collect unemployment? Would he take any job, and by the way even "minimum wage" jobs are not a slam-dunk.

That's a very good question. Vos would probably have no idea how to cope.

He made some valid points. What about the unemployed workers that have all tried these suggestions. You have to keep trying different things. If employers and recruiters are not calling it could be a lack of jobs and not effort on many. Don't judge people by the actions of a few. This is his dangerous assumption and make many of us very angry!

There needs to be living wage jobs!

My husband and I talk about this all of the time. It is extremely difficult to start your own business. Number one, most of us have bad credit due to the lack of job and no one will give us a loan. number two, the economy is so bad that most new businesses are going to find it very difficult to stay in business.

People like this piss me off! Ill be giving him a piece of my mind as well!!

TR11005 Thanks for commenting.

I find it interesting that when I emailed Vos and Gov Walkers office last night I ended my emails to them with the comment...

"We need living wage jobs with benefits!"


[Sickandtired You are so right on about all the "just start your own business." while a few find a way it really is more difficult when more and more people lack income, have reduced income, or are in fear so they are not spending. Bad credit, even relatively good credit won't help in this economy because money borrowed has to be repaid, but with low or no sales, it just doesn't happen.[/size]

I will also add today, while some people may be sincere when they give their "tips" advising what unemployed people should do, they really are slapping them in the face. The rhetoric of networking, switching fields, moving, etc (as if we have not tried) really are not working as well in this economy.


We need living wage jobs ..... not advice.... maybe then we could move away from unemployment extensions...

I've known many folks in business, most filed bankrupcy, some were lucky to sell the assets at a hugh discount just to get out with something. Some with bad credit tied the loan to their home, you can guess what happened when they folded.

What gets me the most is, do they really think we haven't thought of these things ourselves??? The advice they give, whether well intended or not, is just plain insulting at times. I wish they would do their homework and research the facts before they make assumptions. None of them realize how painful this whole ordeal is!! We are not dealing with a normal job market. times are extraordinary.

Tonight our 5pm local news had a bit about how unemployment was up in May from April so they bring on some 20 something economist saying that the economy is strong???????? ANd they ended the clip with the reporter saying we will have staffing people coment on common mistakes applicants make..... when will the focus be where it should be...... we need living wage jobs... period.

They are so misinformed at the local level more so than anyone. We should inform them and encourage them to do their homework before reporting. Didnt that use to be the cardinal law of reporting...knowing the facts first???

Sick & Tired I have to add now because on the 6pm news they did has staffing agency person actual state there are more appicants than jobs and that they have never had so many applications. They also had a couple of young people explaining their frustration over the lack of job opportunities. The economics expert even did a different spin.

I still think the 5pm news could leave people misled, but I had to comment on how they did seem to have a more factual response on the 6pm news and redeemed themselves.

What a tool! The only reason I'm working now is pure luck. And if more people who are working were honest, they'd admit the same. But they'd rather believe that they're just better or smarter or some other horse$#!+.

The mean length of unemployment is now at nearly 40 weeks. This, of course, does not include anyone who worked any sort of temporary job since losing their job. Even one day of work will re-set the unemployment duration as far as the Department of Labor is concerned. It's likely that the more realistic mean number of weeks is much closer to one year...possibly longer.

These statistics and all the others just simply don't bode well for anyone that is unemployed. Anyone with half a brain can figure that out. No matter how perfect a job candidate one is, no matter how many times they retool their resume and improve their interviewing and networking skills, the numbers just are not in their favor.

The author of the blog doesn't seem to get it. It's much easier for the so-called experts like him to live by the old rules that if you were unemployed for any great length of time that there must be something wrong with you. That biased way of thinking is not at all applicable in this job market.

Hopefully this was a bit of a wake-up call for the blogger. Snap judgments are unwarranted when so many people are really, really hurting (and even dying) because of the decimated job market. There is room for guidance, support and constructive advice, but there is no place for "tough love" when lives are being shattered.

That person will only get it, if it only happens to him. Since 2004, I have had many temporary jobs, too many to put half of them on a two page resume. I know how to get a job, the problem is it is impossible to keep a job in this economy. Nobody wants to permanently hire an older worker.

Sorry I live off the government, but now I am allowed to. Since I made it to 62 for early Social Security. That is not enough to live on. McDonald type jobs will not hire me. Remember Al, at least I made where I will at least have food. I am a skilled educated person, many of the unemployed are too. None of us asked for this. Quit telling it is our fault and that we don't know how to find work.

Well, my email to Voss and Gov Walker has recd no response.

I wrote them the other day and even asked for direct leads on a job.

I will be following up with them once a week... I will keep nagging them.

Anyone making assumptions on the unemployed deserves a wake up call.

He's at it again with a new blog post:
http://www.cornonthejob.com/career-advice/my-reaction-to-the-comment-war-that-was-6-reasons-you-dont-have-a-job/
This time there's swearing and he says the unemployed need a kick in the behind, only he doesn't say "behind", and need to grow up. And, we should all pay him. What a jerk.

cablab is right. The more we visit his blog and post comments, the more he likes it because it generates traffic to his site and probably makes money that way as well. I commented on the initial blog and wished I hadnt afterwards. He is mindless and not worth our time and energy! Try not to let it get to you. He is probably paid by one of those teaparty groups that pay their followers to create chaos on the web.

I know its hard, but try not to let it bother you, don't give him the satisfaction.
