When you look for work it is important to narrow down what you are looking for. This is so you don’t waste time applying for jobs you do not actually want.
Keep a list of jobs you have applied for including:
- the job title;
- the company or employer;
- the hours of work advertised;
- the amount of pay advertised;
- the date that you sent the application or email or the date you made the telephone call;
- the address, email address or telephone number you applied to.
You will need this information if you have signed a Job Seekers Allowance Claimant Commitment with the Job Centre Plus.
But it is a good idea to keep a record of who you have applied anyway. You can keep track of which employers or industries you have most success with. This will help you decide how to narrow down your search.
