Instead of him waiting 60+ minutes on the phone waiting for a UC rep I thought about posting on this forum. I dont think calling the business and asking for a name is a good idea. Any suggestions?
I'm on EUC in PA too and was wondering the same thing. My guess is that the folks at the unemployment office are realistic enough to realize that an employer contact name is not always available when you apply through sites like Monster.com.
Usually these sites send you a confirmation E-Mail. Monster.com does, though I can't remember about sites like Hotjobs, Dice, or Careerbuilder. I keep these confirmation E-Mails on file with my UC-304 form. Also, if you log in to your account at Monster, there's an application history you can look through.
So basically, even without an Employer contact name and number, there's still proof. Keep that handy and if you're asked to provide proof of your work search, provide that.
