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
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!
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.

#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
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.
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.
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!
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!
