Back in the beginning of February i was collecting umemployment then worked for a few various temporary job agencies..which i only collected like 3 unemployment checks before i became employed with the temporary agencies and now im back at nothing with working. Does anyone know if I can go back and continue drawing umemployment from the job I collected it from back in February or am I screwed? jobs are hard to find these days by the way im in Ohio.

I would think a phone call to the un-employment agency is in order. It would be quicker and easier to find out.

i'm pretty sure you can still collect, but you need to contact un-employment to reopen your claim

look for jobs out of your area. If you truly want to work and earn a living you may have to relocate in order to do so. Sometimes you have to go where the work is, it certainly won't come and jump up in your lap. I find it hard to believe that there's no work, perhaps it's that there's no work that you want to do?
I have a son near your age, I've worked with kids near your age and one thing that I've noticed is a complete lack of work ethic and a desire to earn a top wage without the blood, sweat and tears that comes with it. Kids today have grown up to become individuals who demand instant gratification for everything, they don't want to work and they don't appreciate the pride that comes from having to work your way up. It doesn't seem to matter how they were raised either.
I have read your other thread also and I have arrived at the conclusion that you seem to be banking on unemployment. GET A J-O-B!!!! You are young and able, get off your duff and go earn your way. Why should the taxpayers support you? Instead of spending your time whining here, start making a plan and stick to it, apply for a minimum of 5 jobs per day, pound the pavement, call in favors, use the word of mouth to get it out there that you are looking for a job. Remember not all jobs are advertised. Put your resume in at places that interest you even if they aren't advertising. Most of all, given your current situation take ANYTHING that comes your way, get yourself back on your feet and then you can look for something else (whle you are still working) and be picky as to what you accept.
One last thing, you say that you took carpentry in school yet can't find a job in that field. I find that hard to believe, unless the States are in a position much different than what's going on up here. There is a labor shortage due to all the work/lack of workers, a housing/building boom, etc; they cant' find enough skilled workers. You have a marketable skill .............. YOU ....... use it.To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

With unemployment at less than 5%, if you really want to work, jobs are certainly not hard to find. I don't care where you're from.

Now our backdraft child needs to get on his state's employment agency's website and learn about the benefits in HIS state, they should have informed him of how the system works before he even started collecting in the first place.

I guess that I must be lucky, as I have never drawn a dime of unemployment comp. I have always had a job of some sort. May not have paid a lot but it paid something.
