Not sure what the rules are but I never search for jobs at weekends and have never been pulled up on it so, with the bank holidays (Friday and Monday) coming up my diary/activity planner will be showing nothing for Friday and Monday as Iam spending time with my family and friends - surely even a JSA claimant is entitled to this? Will anyone on here on JSA/WP be doing anything during Bank Hols re job searches and applications?

I refer the honourable gentleman to the answer I've just given on the Ingeus thread - it doesn't matter whether you SHOULD/SHOULDN'T be job-searching on Bank Holiday - it's about which muppet you have as your wicked overseer at Ingeus. It's all a game with them, so just log on to a great site called CV-Library.co.uk where you can upload your CV and do 'one-click applies'. 5 minutes spent firing of ten random Job Applications, confirmation sent automatically to your registered email account and BOOM... You've covered yourself in glory against JCP and Ingeus machinations.

Get into the habit of applying for a couple of 'one-click' jobs every day - doesn't matter if it's weekends, bank holidays, etc. Takes 2 minutes and shows the JC you're taking your jobsearch 'very seriously' indeed :)

 

If we were applying for jobs by knocking on doors then the Mon-Fri / no Bank Holidays rule would be valid, but the JC could argue that the internet is a 24/7 means of applying. I don't give them the chance to even mention it, I apply for something every day. Cover thy backside at all times!

Yeah I see your point, what I am going to do is make sure I do loads of CV-L apps tonight (one click jobs) and make out I spent 8 hours today searching and applying so that covers me for tomorrow and Friday. Of course you can also slip the 'not well' one day line in somewhere.

..remember that the 'My Applications' list of CV-Library also lists the dates and times you applied for the jobs, so if you want some to cover the next day as well, a bit of Photoshop date-editing might be in order with the screenprints :)

 

..and yes, I've done it myself the odd time when I've missed a day. I am no angel.

My WP adviser never checks anyway, I just say I lined up the applications after doing the covering letter and sent them off at the same time so of course I spent 8 hours doing 4-5 letters I just sent the applications off at the same time, oh yes, a lot of prep work went in to it :wink:

I have committed a sin, just looked at the title of my thread and there is a spelling mistake, my OCD is now in overdrive and I am sweating!

 

All better now? Sorry - I can't edit the titles on individual posts, only the thread title.

The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.
