The number of people out of work hits a seventeen year high.

Figures show almost 2.7 million are unemployed.

That is up by 118,000 in the three months to November 2011, a bigger rise than expected.

In Cornwall, there are five people for every vacant post.

It took Sarah from Camborne a year to find her job.

Now she is worried for her daughter....

“I’ve applied for lots of jobs and not got replies even for interviews or to say that they’re not going to interview me. It was really, really difficult. It was really depressing to be honest because you just think you’re not getting anywhere and you’ve just got to keep banging on”   

“I’m worried for my daughter. She’s starting college in September. When she’s finished there’s nothing for her here. I just think in this day and age if you’re a young person you need a trade, because that seems to be the only place where there’s employment for young people. So that’s my worry. That she’s going to have to move away from me to find good settled well paid employment”

 

See seven things you can do to boost your chances of getting a job here
