Frictional Unemployment

by Jadrian

Andy is Jay and Gloria's new "manny" (a male nanny). He's also been hanging out a lot with Haley, which makes Phil and Claire suspect a budding romance. In this scene, Andy approaches Phil because he wants to becoming a real estate agent. He knows that he's going to need to acquire more human capital before he's able to do that so he asks to work as Phil's new assistant. In this scene, we watch Andy interview for this job. We also find out why Haley and Andy have been spending so much time together - they are practicing interview skills. Interviewing is like everything else and requires a special set of skills that we can get by practice. The better someone is at interviewing, the shorter the amount of time is that s/he will be among the frictionally unemployed (unemployment that results because it takes time to match the right worker to the right job).
