I just got a notice that I thought was some type of unemployment correspondance, it actually was a revised EB work search worksheet. They only thing they really did, was make the boxes huge lol. You can fit all your information now.

Re: bigger spaces, that's good. Just got my first job search form this week and yeah, trying to write legibly in those tiny boxes was...not easy LOL. As you get older your tiny-writing skills sort of decline

It's amazing how many government and private (notably, medical) operations cannot seem to bootstrap their printed forms out of the 1960s.

I got my first EB work search form a week ago, but I assume it's an older one, because the lines are only slightly over 1/4" deep. Not what I'd call "huge."

I have to mail it today... I don't think I'm going to be able to put in the exact URL for jobs I applied to online. I will have to just give the general URL of the employer in the first box. Maybe I can cram the ad posting URL in under "Person or Website Contacted."

Is anyone just putting the job database name in the "Person or Website Contacted" column, e.g., Monster.com or Workforce NJ? What I'm getting at is, maybe the combination of employer name in col. 2 with job site name in col. 4 is enough?

I got mine late, do they really check the dates of online work searches? I didn't get the form till the end of the first week of the two weeks to be claimed on the form.

anyone know about this?

Not from NJ but curious. Are you supposed to list everywhere you searched? That could easily run several pages.

Nah, I highly doubt they check every single form that goes through their office. That would take forever. I only know they do random checks. Just make sure you put everything down (fill in all the spaces).

I collected EB in 2009, and it went smoothly.

Good luck to you.

Only put what they ask. In NJ it's 3 searches per week, and it's bi-weekly. So they have to fill in six job searches.

What happens if you contact an employer & they're not hiring, does that still count towards the three work searches per week?

i got one in the mail yesterday but it doesnt state when im suppose to bring it in. do you think they will send a request and give me a date to bring it in. because this paper just says when we request it to send it in. So im guessing I wait for the request. i just dont want to lose my extended benefits and have to go through all extra stuff to get it back lol. appreciate hearing back
