Customer Question

I'm attending an orientation for MO unemployment tomorrow. I signed up for it a month ago. Do I need a resume ready for tomorrow. I have been writing out job applications but don't have a current resume.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Missouri and I'm attending a workshop in Chillicothe tomorrow.
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Full time
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Can I be selective about accepting a job or will I be expected to take the first job offer.

Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

While having a resume is not a legal requirement to your qualification for unemployment benefits, if you can put together even a draft of a resume for your orientation that would be helpful.

You will be obligated to accept a job that you are qualified for if one is offered to you. If you worked as a white collar executive, you will not be expected to take a job flipping burgers. But of you were say working in the construction field, you will be expected to accept a similar job, with similar wages.

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,
