  1. Recruiters see unemployed person: Sleep.

    Recruiters see employed person: REAL SHIT

    Every time. Can someone explain this?

      It's a form of incumbency bias. Potential employers have a bias towards people who are currently employed, because the default proposition is that if you currently hold onto a job, you must be capable of performing that job to a certain extent, which means you should then be able to do the job that they want you to do. On the flip side, if you do not have a job, the default proposition is that there must be a reason that you do not have a job, which means that you may not be able to do the job that they want you to do. Also similar to another form of incumbency bias, which is the "we want someone with experience, but you have no experience, even though everyone starts without experience". Yes, this type of bias is pretty damned stupid, but it is especially prominent among 'professional recruiters' (an awful concept to begin with) who churn through hundreds, if not thousands of potential applicants to fill a handful of positions.

      They might assume someone is unemployed for a reason, it's kinda cruel, but at the same time logical. 
      Someone who's employed would seem like the safer bet, as they are most likely somewhat competent.
