Do the unemployed see training as an option?

Catherine Rampell of the New York Times says taking classes or training while unemployed and looking for a new career is not as common as some might think, according to what she’s seen in a recent report:

The fact that so many of those who have found new work are changing careers may lend credence to the idea that people are taking advantage of training programs to move into a promising new career. But most of those entering new careers had not taken a class or training course for skills (even if the portion of career-changers who’d had retraining was higher than the portion of non-career-changers).
