- 20th February 2010. Jobless and Statistics
I have been jobless since December, but do not appear in the ONS statistics of "unemployed" (Business, Feb 18). For a flexible, highly-skilled, passionate, and driven-to-succeed professional it is a waste of time, energy and expense to attend Jobcentres. They have no knowledge-based economy opportunities for senior white-collar employees. So we use our contacts file, headhunters, newspapers, and online job markets tirelessly to find our next position.
How many more uncounted people like me are "out there" trying to find a job and not claiming unemployment benefit?
