Someone with job skills in demand should ignore unemployment rates, they mean nothing to him/her.

On the other hand, there are too many people with skills that are no longer in demand in the area they live. These are the people who need to re-qualify and adapt to the ever changing job market if they want to stay local. Other option is for them to be open and find a location (could be other state) that still requires their job qualification. Or accept anything else until getting back on similar lost job.

Worst thing is to wait for the "perfect job" and create big unemployment gaps in the resume. Sad truth is nobody (if given a choice) wants to hire someone that had no job for a long time, at least not for a job with lots of candidates. The ones that work have the best chances to get another job.

Not ignore really (as they do mean something)... but absolutely look deeper into them.
In particular, they need to understand how the problem of *under* employment works.

That's the *under* employment problem they need to understand.

True enough... there really is no getting around this. The question is *where* you do it.
