Today life you have to face increasingly complex. In order for you to survive in your future life, you must be able to face challenges. For that must understand well the various problems that may later be faced, among them the problem of employment.

1. Resident as a Resource in Economic Development

The role of the population as a human resource in development is a very basic thing for you to understand. An over-populated population will not automatically become a large capital for development in a country, it can even be a burden or a burden for other residents Of the entire workforce in a country, not all have the opportunity to work so that the workforce is grouped into the labor force working and unemployed workforce (open unemployed).

Work is the activity of doing a job with the intention of obtaining or helping to earn income or profit for at least one hour in a week in a row and not interrupted. Working forces are categorized as working full-time if within a week have hours of work for 35 hours or more.

Non-labor force workers are those who are still in school, taking care of the household, and others, such as mentally or otherwise, that make a person unproductive.

2. Employment Opportunities

The state of employment in a country is one of the factors related to the problem of unemployment. Employment opportunity is an opportunity for the population to perform its functions as an economic source in the production process to achieve prosperity.

Job opportunities include opportunities for work, opportunities to work according to education and skills, and opportunities for self-development. The more people who work means the wider the employment opportunities. Job opportunities are divided into two groups, namely
  1. Permanent employment, meaning employment opportunities that enable people to work continuously until they retire or are unable to work;
  2. Temporary employment opportunities, meaning employment opportunities that only allow people to work in a relatively short time, then unemployed to wait for new job opportunities.
In the employment, balance is usually seen between the number of the labor force and the number of available employment opportunities. If the workforce is greater than employment, there is unemployment.

3. Unemployment
