    This is a simple question not to put anyone on front street, but how long do you think is too long to be unemployed? and Do you think it will ever turnaround?

    Things get tough after about a year or two. Speaking from experience.

    On top of that, you'll have to explain the gap in your employment to employers.

    That what I do not understand why they would ask that of anyone knowing how bad it is?
    I wonder what do they expect people to do if no one is hiring and afraid to hire?

    The longer the gap the worse it is. Also, a lot of jobs wont even let you apply if you aren't currently employed. This is announced on postings.

    I don't think people want to acknowledge just how bad this unemployment thing is. There are going to be people who were already having problems and then hit by this. There are going to be graduates who are unable to enter their fields because entry level listings require years of experience.

    It really sucks.

    I hate to say it, but this is true.
    They do this as a way to weed out people who do not "fit" their organization.
    It doesn't make sense,but this has happen to a lot of us and instead, of abolishing or abandon the practice; it is still going on now as we speak.
    That's why they are also focus on hiring young people.

    They do not have to pay as much for hiring them over someone with some experience.
