A) Once you have filed for unemployment benefits, you will need to continue to look for work. This is a requirement for receiving benefits in most states.

You can put in your job searches in a few different ways. You can:

  • Use online job boards. There are many online job boards that list open positions. You can search for jobs by keyword, location, and other criteria.
  • Contact temp agencies. Temp agencies can help you find temporary or contract work.
  • Network with friends, family, and former colleagues. Let people know that you are looking for work. They may know of open positions that are not advertised.
  • Attend job fairs. Job fairs are a great way to meet with potential employers and learn about open positions.

When you are looking for work, be sure to keep track of your job searches. You will need to provide this information to your state’s unemployment office when you certify for benefits each week.

Here are some tips for keeping track of your job searches:

  • Keep a log of all the jobs you apply for. Include the name of the company, the position you applied for, and the date you applied.
  • Keep copies of all your job applications and resumes.
  • Keep a record of all the interviews you have. Include the date, time, and location of the interview, as well as the name of the interviewer.

By keeping track of your job searches, you can show your state’s unemployment office that you are actively looking for work and that you are making a good-faith effort to find a new job. This will help you to continue to receive unemployment benefits while you are looking for work.

Once you are approved for benefits you will be instructed by your local unemployment office on how to report your job search.
