    Unemployment

    So I been laid off for the past few months. First month I didn't care, second month I figured I'd apply to EDD, third month started to wonder wth is my EDD. Now in my fourth month being dicked around like a fucking beggar.


    Only question I'm wondering atm is, Anyone know how many items I am supposed to put in the Work Search Record (Section B)

    I think I got the other shit figured out, but I'm sure they'll make something up.

    What State are you in? This is the general instructions. Did you get a PIN number?


    Work Search Log:
    - Each week you are expected to make a reasonable effort to obtain a job. You will receive a work search log for you to keep a record of your work search activities and job contacts.
    - Periodically, we will notify you to send in your logs for review. If you return to work, you must fax or send in your completed Work Search Log(s). New logs will be sent to you every 5 weeks you remain unemployed.

    I live in CA. They do a form every two weeks, in order to get the check. Last time pissed me off so much. They claim I forgot to check one of the boxes that asked if I searched for work so they resent the form back to me. Even if I didn't click it, there's the searched for work form with jobs that I applied to....

    I usually tried to put in 5 to 10 apps a week when I was on unemployment at the least. They have pretty low standards on it though and just want to make sure people are trying to find something in their field and not jerking them around.

    Hmm. Gotta click it. Click all applicable boxes(regardless of whether you looked for work or not). Also, if you did look for work, write down where you looked(i.e. applied @ best buy, gamestop etc). You also have to access your CalJobs page at least once every 30 days otherwise they'll jump on your ass. CalJObs is pretty great since there's a fuckton of job listings and if you have your resume all set up you just push a button to have it sent to the employers. Anyhow, good luck with your job hunt

    Caljobs isn't that great. All the stuff that applied to my field is on Careerbuilder, same with monster. I can get them all off careerbuilder.

    And yea, I know I'm supposed to click all the boxes, which i thought I did. But what I'm saying is even if I didn't it shows on the back in the work search record that I wrote write on the back, which they know is there because they asked for it.

    Problem is now there aren't many jobs that apply to my field, so I wanna know how many "filler" jobs I should apply to also.

    Try craigslist?

    Just find your state and city, and specific areas in the city. Bunch of job categories, etc etc.

    You only have to fill out the "work search form" on the back if that little box on the front is X'ed. Usually (at least for me in Cali) it's only X'ed once like 3 months into your unemployment.

    Is yours X'ed?

    I have been on unemployment twice in my life here in CA. I just checked the box that said I was looking for a job, even when I wasn't and they never asked me for further details. I wonder why they require that for some people and not for others?

    One time I was on unemployment for like 6 months until my benefits ran out. Never once did they ask for proof that I was still "looking for a job." Interesting.

    (I was of course spending all of my valuable time playing FFXI when it first came out. )
