Work Search Log - Unemployment Insurance Claimants

 

The Work Search Log (PDF document, 34KB, download Adobe Acrobat for free) is a convenient way to keep a detailed record of your weekly job contacts while filing for unemployment insurance benefits. The form can be printed or saved to your computer so it is easily accessible. As you have been told, you must make at least two job contacts per week and include the following information:

  • Date contacted
  • Contact information (address, telephone number, website information, etc.)
  • How you contacted the employer (in-person, telephone, internet, etc.)
  • Person contacted (if available)
  • Type of work sought
  • Did you apply for a job, if so how (in person, internet, mail, filled out application, sent resume, etc.)
  • If internet application completed, confirmation number
  • Results of application (pending, not hiring, will call, not accepting application, etc.)

Remember, your work search contacts are subject to verification by the Division of Unemployment Insurance. You must keep a copy of your work search records for one year after the contacts were made.
