Now, I already applied for unemployment again, but i'm wondering if i will qualify. I read something about u having to had worked at least a year to qualify, i have a lil girl and rent to pay, so i'm really worried. Of course, I've already been looking for a job online but times are hard and i'm afraid it will be hard to find one. Does anyone have advise?????

  • You can only do what you are doing, Look for a job, and hope you qualify for benefits again. I know that right now, very few people are being turned down for extensions, so you should qualify for something this time around. I wish you luck, don't let your fears get the better of you

  • What state do you live in. I though you had to be working at a job for 3 months. Maybe it has changed. If you do not qualify, try applying for state jobs. They are more secure, better pay, & beni's

  • Hope I could some kind of help! I can get you some more info if you'd like!

    I'm happily engaged and we are about to buy our first home. We live in a small town where it is really hard to find a decent job, so I've been searching for a way to work at home. I recently found a home-based opportunity with no large investments and no risk! I work in the comfort of my own home with an international, 24 year old, Inc 500 company. All I do is set up customer accounts and do some online marketing. I work around my own schedule, with a group of amazing team members. I never even have to leave my own home to be successful!

    If this is something you'd be interested in, please visit my website.

    I think that once you hear more information about the company, you'll love it just as much as I do!

    I hope to hear from you soon :)
