California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I've been applying to at least 3 jobs per week (in film/tv), and I have email records. I applied online for both teaching positions as well as film/tv jobs this week, just in case.
I was at community college for two semesters, took an editing class, then landed an assistant editing position for 6 months. However I've had scattered work in film over the past 4 or 5 years.
They're calling me in for a mandatory Reassessment meeting to make sure we're actively looking as well as give tips on work searches, etc. (for all people getting an extension) this Monday, but they're only asking for work searches from the past 2 weeks.
I'm ok if they ask to start looking for teaching jobs, but I'm wondering if they can cut me off or worse, take all my money back for only searching for film/tv jobs.
Thanks! That's great to hear, and I couldn't ask for a better answer.
Just a quickie follow-up: The form I have to bring in is a Reemployment/Eligibility Assessment Questionnaire and 2 of the questions are related to all of this.
"List your usual occupation(s)/length of experience" (and gives me two lines) to fill out.
"What type of work are you seeking?"
Do I even have to mention Education on this form, being that there's a legal disclaimer about penalties for "withholding facts"
Thanks again! I feel a lot better going into this meeting now.
OK - one more and that's it...
They're also making us post a resume on their Caljobs website...and it looks like you have to pick what kind of work you are seeking. From what you're saying it sounds like it's fine to tailor my resume more toward Film/TV, right?
OK that's it...thanks again!
