Over 12.8 million people are currently unemployed in the US. Of that, the number of long-term unemployed rose from 5.1 to 5.4 million in May of 2012. These long-term unemployed individuals account for 42.8 percent of those without work in the US. According to the US department of labor and statistics, the current average duration that an individual in the US is unemployed is approximately 40 weeks.

Prositions, Inc., a career coaching and consulting firm, is helping the unemployed find desirable positions in a fraction of the time by using some of the latest technology and social media software.
