Poll: How Long Have You Been Unemployed?

According to an article by the Job Center of Wisconsin, there are four stages to unemployment. One starts with the stage of denial and isolation, where the person might express some confusion for being let go. Not talking about their emotions causes them to go into isolation. The next stages are a wide range of emotions including: anger, blame, depression and sadness. The final stage is acceptance of the job loss, which not only leaves room for self-analysis, but the person is then able to ‘move on’ so to speak and begins looking for another job. Whatever stage of the unemployment grieving process you’re in, how long you’ve been unemployed for tells a different story. With that said, how long have you been unemployed? Please take our poll!
