Since the Republican controlled House Of Representatives continues to block Federal unemployment assistance, how long should you wait to begin a serious job search?  Most states offer 24 to 26 weeks of unemployment assistance, but since the recession, the federal government has been supplementing state run unemployment by adding several months of assistance with the latest offer being a “retroactive” 5 month extension.  The legislation has passed the Senate but seems to have stalled out in the House.
