You may find it hard to get a job after a long period of unemployment. Why should an employer take the risk of hiring you when so many candidates have better CVs?
Give you next employer a reason to believe in you by starting your own business. And if it works well, you may never need to find another job actually!
Start by listing what you do best, it can be anything, fun or not, big or small. Bundle it into a package, e.g. creative hairdresser, multilingual computer scientist, and offer it online. Talk to your friends, attend events and communicate a lot about it.
Results will lead your next actions: anything's possible, really, as long as you take it step by step. Remember Business Ideas' here to help all along.
