There is just no way that I could be unemployed that long. Longest time for me since I turned 14...about 6 days.

Tables need to be waited, movie tickets need to be torn, yards need to be raked, homes need to be painted....etc.

Congrats.

Unemployment is a 2 sided sword. Was on it for 9 months from late 2009 to june 2010.
Problem is if you top out you get 500 a week. So why would you take a job making less than? I didn't even look for jobs lesss
Than that.

I actually did look for jobs that paid less than unemployment at one point. I was going stir crazy. I saw on a labor finders job where they were hiring for a 3rd shift position loading boxes on to trucks. I thought why not. I'm in good shape and I'm way over qualified for the job. They will hire me in a second! Well I went and filled out the application and they didn't even call me into the office for an interview. A lady came back with my paperwork and said I'm sorry sir but we are looking for someone with warehouse experience. That was the lowest point of my unemployment.
