With all the confusion about Jobsearch requirements for UC and JSA I have made a start on a 35 hour Jobsearch template by gathering almost 1000 local newspapers. If yours is missing you can add it to the list.

The idea is to build a template that will cover all working benefits.

It will take a communal effort to get all the data together but give it a go and you'll get the idea where we're going with this B)

Try it Here

The form is listed under the 'Job Search' menu.

Great idea Spanner. I checked the list and two of my local newspapers are featured. :) Any templates that can help people get through this mundane task is a welcome asset.

Nice idea Spanner, a couple of points thou. One the UJM isnt always offline :S . "Tried logging in to Universal Jobmatch but it was offline again.". And secondly won't it seem a bit 'suspicious' if everyone's job search is exactly the same, espically if for some reason they do it online at the UJM? :sick:

Still saying that I like your thinking Spanner ;) , maybe you could add a randomized element to vary the jobsearch tool. And create a pdf file to download of all the activities that one can do to create a 35 x hrs of job search, so you can cut and paste them in each week? :huh:

Thanks Dude ;)

The whole thinking behind the template is to make it as variable as possible so that everyone can use it to good local effect.

The nice thing about it is that the Work Coach in say, Glasgow or Skegness, will have no idea that the same template was submitted by a Jobseeker in say, Liverpool or Plymouth, and vice versa :)

Great idea about creating an automated process, a word of warning though is your use of nothing suitable, that is a red rag to a bull, any and all jobs are suitable until they can establish why it is not suitable and then comes the awkward questions, better to state "nothing new found" imo.

And some people think we are all work shy who get free money, look at how much work we put in to stop them starving us.

If we are putting up tricks of the trade on UJM is click the apply button and plenty of jobs it takes you to another pg with more info regarding the job but on your UJM application history it says you have applied for the role ;)

Still in the early stages of development, we now have 7 days in our Job Search Diary. We could do with randomising the responses a bit more and then we can think about putting some Jobseeker survival tips at the end.

Thanks to all those members who have tested it and provided constructive feedback B)

I do the same except I copy from a previous filled in template, I use plenty of applications via phone call and postal so there no evidence to produce mixed with a few click and apply.

Takes me 20 minutes day before I sign on, might invest in a magic marker tho see if can get it down to 10 mins lol

Looking good so far, great work! One thing, my CC usually states to ring/contact ex-workmates/friends/family about any vacancies. I usually put that twice in my jobsearch activity for the week. Depending how many phone calls made/emails sent that can take up to at least 2-3 hours each time.
Flotsam: People who are considered to be worthless or to have been rejected by society.

Thanks TF ;) That's a great help.

I'll put a freehand text box in for each day that can be filled with things like this. I'll also include a box for time input, that should give us an idea of the average time each added activity takes.

Nice work Spanner ;) , I was also wondering if you could individually/personally adjust the 'time' settings, again make it look more random. If the same times appear for each activity, any roach might smell a rat? Just thought of blurring the lines ;)

It's my honest opinion that giving the time of the day and how many hours it took is giving too much info to the work coach. Let them do all the work of adding up all the hours if they suspect you are not doing enough. You can always show the time and hours to a DM if necessary :)

Less information they got, less information they could compare with other claimants!
