I posted a diary earlier this week trying to get a count of just how many Kossacks are currently unemployed, and well, quite frankly, not enough people participated.

More below...

I hate to ask for recommends, but in order to get the most accurate poll, EVERYONE needs to participate.

Also, I received some suggestions on a few more options I could add to the poll, so let's try this again!

Take two!

Please list in the comments below if you are one of the unemployed:

How long you have been unemployed?

What part of the country do you live in?

And what kind of work did you do and what are you currently looking for?

Thank you to everyone who takes part in the poll.  I can't help but wonder just how many people have been unemployed as long as I have (over two years).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
