I have moved to the suburbs for a job, and then was let go after 2 years. Because I have started my own business in this area simultaniously, I would lose a lot of money if I moved too far away to conduct my business where I currently live.
What does my responsibility of "actively looking for employment" look like, in order to receive the un-employment check from the job that let me go for no fault on my part? Does the "must be actively searching" criteria include trying to obtain a job at Mcdonalds or does it only require a person to apply for applicable jobs in your geographical area of residence, area of education, and expertise?
If it is honest and responsible, I would continue with my current course of action. This would be to collect the salaray from the job I worked (but now only at 60% of the salary) along with doing my side business as I have been over the past two years, until I no longer need the income come 6-8 months from now.
Thanks for your guidance in this...
