It is better to be in education than unemployed if you can afford it. A long gap in employment can be hard to overcome.
If work is not coming your way easily, it may not be a bad idea to continue your education provided you can afford it. True that experience is extremely important, but is it worth slogging in a low-paying, meaningless job just so you could highlight that on your CV? Unless you need the cash, I’d say go for advanced graduate degree programs and ride out the recession. It will be a much more fruitful experience than having a job that’s completely unrelated to your education. By the time you get out of school, the economy would have hopefully recovered and you would have a much stronger CV in your hands.
