HomeHR glossaryUnemployed

Unemployed refers to individuals who are currently not engaged in any gainful employment, are actively seeking work, and are available to work but have not been able to secure a job. In the context of human resources, this term is used to describe the status of individuals who are jobless and looking for employment opportunities.

In the hiring process, HR professionals often assess the work history and qualifications of applicants to determine if they are currently employed or unemployed. For instance, when reviewing resumes, HR managers may consider the length of time an applicant has been unemployed as it can be a factor in evaluating their suitability for a particular job.
