Hard to find a job after unemployed for more than 6 months

I have been working for about 10 years and left my job last year December.

Is it hard to find a job after unemployed for more than 6 months ?

Can try those short-term temp job first or try out those 1-year contract job, but need to lower your wage expectation. And from there, see if can convert to perm or full-time. At least there's income to tide tru while waiting to land a proper job.

It is very hard. Employers don't seem to like big gaps on resume, and may not want to dig out time to interview.

I was unemployed for more than 6 months too. I applied for more than 50 jobs and only had 2 interviews.

yeah and it get extremely hard after march when CB starts.
i hate to go thro agency but had no choice coz many company hire thro agencies these days. and agencies want to earn more commission by giving u lower pay. to pay u lower, u will likely have to be a newbie in the workforce.
tried looking for temp. for temp i was ok wif low pay since its temp, but yet agency asked whether i could commt if the company wants to extend. so if you cannot commit on a longer basis, they will not take u too even if its a 3 mth temp job. i oso notice these days, instead of hiring perm staff and giving 3 mths probation, company rather hire u as temp for 3 mths, and if want, then convert u . can save so much money!

and the temp can be as low as $8. its the same as what i got when i was doing temp 20 yrs ago! sg really in deep shiit. the pay has never inccreased much? all cheap labour
