The prospect of finding a job for long-term unemployed people always seems weak for some people because they might feel that they lack experience and the economy as well, but despite that fact there are still more opportunities for employment if only you make good research. There could be a problem nonetheless and that is the issue of your outdated or under-experienced CV. If you've been out of the office for more than six months, you should make some tweaks to your resume to increase your chances.
If you've been out of work for a while, try to create a small business. Determine which of your skills are good for sale, and market yourself for hire. You have to be truthful about the work you're doing, but this can help bridge a gap and bring in some income.
2. EXPLAIN your absence from a job
It must not necessarily be a corporate job; you might be that you were involved in a voluntary program or you were into a small business. That’s important because it will help them know that you were not absent from work for lack of performance.
3. SHOW HOW YOU'VE KEPT CURRENT
Try also to use your time off to improve your skills, learn new technology, or get an industry certification and document it on your CV even if your effort is still a work-in-progress. Certifications have become very common in many fields. Being able to show that you have had training in your field can credit you. It demonstrates that you are staying current.
Do not always carry the same CV for your entire job interview; add a little touch to it. Doing this is easy, just highlight few sections and change them. If you're going after a job in sales, think about that company and that specific job and highlight areas of your past experience that are most relevant, add those skills presentation to make you the most perfect candidate you can be.
