Eligibility requirements question

My child's school closed due to covid 19, which caused attendance issues and I was fired from my staffing agency job. Does the work search requirement being waived save me from the requirements of followup and job search thru the agency to qualify for unemployment benefits? I didn't realize you have to contact them within 24 hrs and then wait three days to file. Does this still apply due to work search requirements being waived? Thanks #help #eligibility #unemployed #momlife #thestruggleisreal #coronavirus #unemployment

Yes, go online and file. Watch YouTube videos that help you through the process. Please note* Don't accept the first denial. Do all you can to talk to someone who knows what they are talking about. Ask for supervisory staff. There are a lot of new hires manning phone who will tell you wrong info. You may need to mail in forms, but instead FAX forms in...Do it quickly. Ask for direct phone lines or extension to who you are working with

The UI office may even make you jump hoops and confuse you so you can delay getting approved.

Once approved you will have waiting week (no pay)...but also submit weekly report even if denied...then fight for retro pay. They will so things like tell you that you will just have to restart claim...and cause you to miss out on all the weeks of initial claims. Don't take it lying down. ALSO REALIZE THAT PANDEMIC RELIEF pay PUA application needs to be filled out separately to get the $600 till end of July.

Volunteer Work.

Volunteer Work over the internet. Somebody could start a list for resources for those who need things. Like basic necessities. Like food. Personal cleaning supplies. Maybe ask a local church, for extra gift cards. Or something else, there are other resources, like helping people on a chat line, for those who can't help themselves. There are so many of them.

I like both degrees, but I would like an objective response to the question

Which degree gives you more exposure to upper level executive networking, an accounting degree or a supply chain degree ? #Help

BEWARE: 3 popular job scams

#Coronavirus has left millions of workers without jobs, many desperate for remote jobs that can provide a source of income without having to leave their homes.

Unfortunately, this also means that scammers are on the prowl for vulnerable people looking for work. There have always been job scams out there, but it’s going to grow as the weeks go on.

Here are a few of the most popular scams that should raise some red flags.

FAKE CHECKS You may see a job post offering “quick cash” typically in the telemarketing, sales or customer service field.

Red flag: Employer offers to send you a check to buy supplies to do the job

  • When you go to deposit the check, it’ll probably clear within a day or two
  • A few days after, the bank will discover the check was fake
  • Your bank account will be negative, and you are now responsible for any overdraft

Protect yourself: Never use money from a check to wire funds, send gift cards or money orders to strangers.

MYSTERY SHOPPERS Retailers DO sometimes use mystery shoppers to audit their stores for customer service, cleanliness, etc. But, chances are legitimate companies are not doing this right now.

Red flag: Employers ask you to evaluate a money transfer service (such as Western Union or MoneyGram) as your first assignment.

  • You receive a check and are asked to deposit it, take out the cash and wire it to a third party (spoiler alert: the third party is the scammer!)
  • The check will bounce, and you will be responsible for the negative balance

To check if a mystery shopping offer is legitimate, check here!

GOVERNMENT GRANTS/LOANS Federal and state governments are working on relief packages to help workers get through this tough time. There will be a lot of new programs being stood up over the next few weeks/months, so please be careful.

Red flag: Any call, text or email that offers a government grant or loan.

  • Do not give out any personal information over the phone
  • Do not click on any links in emails or provide any personal information

To confirm which programs are legitimate, check official government websites + news stories.


Please be sure to report any suspected scams on Jobcase by clicking the three dots in the upper right and selecting Report. That will help our team find them quicker!

Good luck with your job search!

International student unemployment due to COVID-19

Hello, my name is Hewie and I am in a tough situation right now. Here is my background. I am an international student who graduated in December 2019 with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering. I also got my Engineer in Training certificate in Environmental Engineering.

I am currently in OPT right now and the issued date was on February 1st. According to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), my unemployment cannot last more than 90 days, which is approximately by the end of April. If I am unemployed by the end of April, I have to get back to Hong Kong... I was supposed to have a few interviews at the end of March but due to COVID-19, my interview appointments had to cancel or postpone.

I am still waiting for further notice from USCIS. I have been losing sleep worrying about my status and financial security. I would really hope some civil/environmental engineering companies can give me an interview chance. It can be any paid/unpaid position!

Howie any chance you can consult with a lawyer to see if any exceptions can be made? Could be an opportunity to find more international students together to petition the USCIS. I wish I could do more to help but I can at least offer my support. Don't give up!

Looking for a long term career!

Due to the virus I was laid off from my job. I just recently got it offered back to me, however i’m unsure if i want to continue with my company. I’m the studio manager at a fitness facility so i’m putting in at least 60 hours a week with little to no help from anyone else.

Where can I find a career that’s willing to hire with little experience? I’ve got a bachelors degree in Exercise Science Sports Management. I’m not 100% sure what I want to do so i’m open to any options but I know i like the business side of the fitness industry and not so much of the personal training/coaching side. Any advice is appreciated!

Check with your local sports franchises. No joking here, it wouldn't hurt to see if they need help in their training facilities. Major league teams are all making a push for more female involvement in the day to day operations of their organizations. In any endeavor, never tell yourself, "no". Always let the "no" be told by someone else.

Finding my way

Hi Anaya! I think the first thing you need to do is look for work. Remember that 99% of any actors didn't start off with big jobs right off the bat. Many worked in fast food and did other jobs to gain what is called life experience (and of course some $$$).

Here is my advice on what to do...

The first thing you need to do is make a resume. It's easy and you can do it in 5-10 minutes here on the site. You can do this even without any experience. Here is what you need to include and how to make the resume.

Emphasize your education As a current student (or even if you just graduated), be sure to emphasize your education. Place your education info at the very top of your resume. If you have a strong GPA, highlight this as well as any academic awards, honors, or other achievements.

Include the small things Since your work experience is somewhat limited, focus on emphasizing any other forms of work, including volunteer experience or any extracurricular activities you participated in, including clubs, sports, and other organizations. If you happened to do some tutoring, babysitting, gardening, or dog walking for example include those as well. Even if these are jobs that don’t require a large skill set, the fact you performed them on a somewhat regular basis shows you have a strong work ethic!

Emphasize leadership experience Employers are always looking for job applicants with leadership experience and qualities. If you were a captain for your sports team or the vice president of your student council, be sure to list these positions! You should feel proud of them.

List your skills Consider including a skills section on your resume to include any skills you have that are related to the job you are applying for.

Connect your resume to the job Review the job posting before creating your resume! Circle any key qualifications or requirements of the job and determine how YOU are a good match and what you can bring to them. Then be sure to include any experiences and skills in your resume that highlight how you are a great fit for that specific job.

Edit ALWAYS proofread your resume before submitting it to an employer! Your format needs to remain consistent and easy to follow, and spelling or grammatical errors are a big no, no. Ask a friend or family member to read through your resume to catch any mistakes before you submit it to a potential employer.

Make your resume FAST on Jobcase Not sure where to begin? Jobcase has a built-in resume generator that you can use to create and download a beautiful, formatted resume right from your profile in 3 easy steps.

1- Fill out your profile completely! This includes your location, email, summary, work experience, traits, education, skills, etc.

2- Click on the resume tab just under your summary.

3- Then click the download button below your resume preview.

Now you have a formatted, PDF resume that you can use to apply for jobs!
