With challenges in the workplace and high and steady unemployment numbers, Americans who want to work are required to take a “Road Less Traveled” to find jobs and interact with thought-leaders.
According to an article at CNBC just last week, economists at Princeton University published a paper entitled “Are the Long-Term Unemployed on the Margins of the Labor Market,” that painted a bleak picture of the United States economy and labor market: only one in 10 of long-term unemployed individuals will find a job within one year, a headline that is known much too well for millions of out of work Americans.

Former top economist for the President, Alan Krueger, along with Judd Cramer and David Cho who collaborated on the paper, argued that the long-term unemployed people – those who have been out of work for at least six months – will experience long-term pain in their job search because of two devastating factors:
1. The chronically jobless people become discouraged and stop searching for work altogether, a factor that is usually omitted from the unemployment rate.
2. Being out of work for an extended period of time gives potential employers the wrong impression, often believing applicants are incompetent to fulfill the job tasks or have the insufficient skills since they have been out of the labor force for so long. Read more.
