A job is important for many people, especially for their own selfidentity, and in case ofunemployment it could lead to feelings of loss and despair. Employment phase enters whenthe long-term unemployed has been receiving unemployment benefits for 450 days. In anewspaper article, published in april 2012 it says that half of the people who are long-termunemployed dont get any help fom the employment agency to find another job.The staffingcompany Adecco laid an offer to the employment agency bid regarding a project for helpingthe long-term unemployed to find new jobs. Michael Hållberg, responsible for the HSC innorth, came up with the suggestion to try this project in one of the biggest cities in Norrlandtoo. This project came to be called « work trough Adecco ». The purpose of this paper is tofind out how the individual is affected by his or hers long-time unemployement and if theyhad any use of the Addeco- project they participated in. A subsidiary aim is to investgateimportance of the group for the individual development. This essay is based on a qualitativeresearch approach, through interviews and literature search, and my own preconceived ideasas background. The result has emerged showing that overall, the participants are satisfied withthe group they were part of, and all felt that they could get support from the other participantsand encourage each other in one way or another, despite a certain degree of conflict. Theresults also show that most are still in the employment phase.
