Middle Class and Jobless

September 14, 2009

Just watching a documentary on the television regarding the jobless middle class. Brings back horrible memories of the time I was looking for a job. I am not middle class, but I know how much it is a struggle to look for the work you are used to doing. I never once got help from the jobcentre on actual jobhunting…. but they were happy to advise me on local bar and restaurant work. I finally found my job I was looking for, but I had to be patient and persistent. I am in a relatively professional job, and a statistic mentioned in the documentary is that the professional job vacancies on the jobcentre database accounted for 6% of the total of about 300,000 vacancies. The business to be in today….life coaching the jobless on how to find a job!
