I worked for the same company in a niche job for 12 years.
Got on EI end of Dec 2011 and my claim expires in Oct 2012.
It's been quite impossible to find a job so far, to the point that I have not even had one job interview. I do keep a log of my job searches (on-line) but nothing beyond that, what else could I keep?
I understand that there is a two or three month period where EI leaves you alone but then it may beging to "interview" you to make sure you are looking for a job? I am worried about this process given my situation. Could you please enlighten me? Is this process random? Is there an algorithm somewhere and will I get flagged? What is the best approach to deal with this? I need to support my family and depend on EI payments.
Any info would be greately appreciated!
