To be classified as unemployed, a person must currently be without a job and available to work, as well as actively looking for work in the previous four weeks.
What are the three types of unemployed?
Structural unemployment is caused by a mismatch between the skills and abilities of the unemployed workers and the requirements of the job vacancies. To reduce structural unemployment, government policies can encourage job creation in specific sectors, provide training and re-training for unemployed workers, and/or subsidize employment.
2. Cyclical unemployment is caused by a lack of aggregate demand in the economy. To reduce cyclical unemployment, government policies can focus on increasing aggregate demand through measures such as fiscal stimulus (e.g. tax cuts or increased government spending) or monetary policy (e.g. interest rate cuts).
3. Frictional unemployment is caused by the time it takes for workers to search for and find new jobs. To reduce frictional unemployment, government policies can focus on improving the efficiency of the labour market by reducing search costs, providing better information about job vacancies, and/or improving matching between workers and jobs.

What do you put under a job if you are unemployed?
The simplest option is not to list a current employer. Some profiles list “Unemployed” or “Seeking New Position” as the company name, but then you’re advertising the fact that you’re out of a job. If you’re doing freelance or consulting work, another option is to list your company as “Self-employed.”
