Unemployment is something that Wikipedia defines as “Unemployment (or joblessness) occurs when people are without work and actively seeking work.” Unemployment is defined as a situation where someone of working age is not able to get a job but would like to be in full time employment. Unemployment is a drawback of our current era where thousands of graduates and post graduates with good degrees fail to get a proper job. If you are qualified and talented and still unemployed, then this is the time for you to move on. Figure out the possible reasons why you are unemployed and get a move on to your life by improving your inabilities.
Here are some possible reasons of your unemployment:
- Your resume is not good.
Resume is a document which your employers refer to judge you, your resume can’t highlight your abilities and achievements is the reason why you did not get a job. It is suggested to approach a professional resume writer and get your resume corrected by him.
- You don’t have proper skills to nail an interview.
Mastering an interview requires research and practice before you appear for the interview, if you don’t know about the skills of how to answer questions in an interview then you will definitely loose the job.

- You aren’t networking.
Networking is very important for you to get a job, when unemployment is high then networking helps you get a job. The more networks you have, the more chance you have of getting a good job.
- You don’t have a professional look.
The way you look is also important to get a nice job, if you tattoos on your external body or you haven’t shaved or pierced ears, eyes, nose, etc. then it gives a negative impression of you on the interviewer and it makes difficult for you to get a job.
- You don’t meet the qualifications.
Sometimes when you apply for a job and you have less grades according to what was required for the job then it makes difficult for you to get a job. It is suggested to get yourself recruited at some smaller position meanwhile do a higher degree, so when you are done with the degree you will have some past experience as well as a good degree which will make it easier to get the job you wanted.
- You are overqualified.
If you apply for a job where the qualifications expected are less then what you have got then it also makes difficult for you to get the job because the employers may think that you may leave this job anytime when their competitors will offer you a higher position.
- Your attitude is much than required.
Your employers will not hire you if you have a bad attitude. Getting angry for small reasons, not obeying your seniors, etc. are the signs of your bad attitude.
- You are disobeying the instructions.
Some formals instructions such as not attaching a cover letter with your resume or not dressing in formals at the interview, etc. which are disobeyed by you can affect your job.
- You have not done your homework.
You need to do some research about the company who is recruiting you because some questions are asked in the interview where the employers want to know about your knowledge regarding this company, if you fail to answer those questions then it will leave an impact that you are not much sincere regarding this job.
- Your communications are not good.
If you answer the questions asked to you only in one word or in an incomplete sentence then that means you are not good in communicating. This is a very common mistake that everyone does in an interview, the solution to it is practicing the interview before you appear for it.
If you are unemployed, don’t feel tensed. You are not the only person in this world who is without a job. Just remember the story of the spider trying to make its web, the spider failed many times and fell from his web but still he tried again and again and finally was successful to complete his web.
Just remember the thought of “Try and try till you succeed.” And look at yourself with a positive attitude and you will find success knocking your doors.
