Job Search

Does anyone have a good website for job searches? Craigslist doesn’t have much. Places like Indeed, Monster, etc… are full of employment agencies and recruiters who contact you about jobs that are not even in your field of work or are temporary (contract) work. Not what I am looking for and a waste of time! I prefer to deal directly with a potential employer. Any suggestions that actually work?


If anyone has exhausted all administrative options in appealing decisions with the EDD and have received a letter of denial from the appeals board in Sacramento, ca-I can type your appeal for you to file with the Superior court. Email me


Unsure of what to expect

I recently received a letter from the EDD stating that I owe them $15.00 for a mistake that I made a year ago. My question is will that slow down my certification for this today? Or am I just being paranoid because it still says pending? I don’t even recall receiving new certification for these past two weeks, but I was able to certify online. I’m completely lost and waiting on this to get to my new job that I start Monday.


EDD site said paid

The money just now showed up in my account. Go to Bank of America EDD site and sign in with all of your information. I certified online on Sunday at 11:30 am. It stayed pending all night. Showed paid all day but money just now reflected on my Edd card. Its 10:15 pm in Laguna Niguel, Ca. The actual EDD site still showed paid but doesn’t have the transaction number from today.

My last payment became disqualified ? They said they sent me a letter in the mail a week ago saying why but I still haven’t received anything. Lady then told me if I don’t mail it back within 10 days I won’t get my money for that week. STILL HAVENT RECIEVED A LETTER.
Has anyone had any luck getting their money back even though it’s been disqualified ?

I know the phone lines have been extremely busy recently but here’s something that may help you connect with UI faster. It wont get you through right away but it makes the process a little easier. Good luck.

Dial 1-800-300-5616
As soon as you hear the recording dial: 1
Wait until you hear “BPO”
Then dial 6-7-3-SSN-1

If you hear “all of our representatives are busy…” DIAL: 3
If you hear “due to the number of callers” hang up and try again.

I was receiving benefits until july ’17 and had an account with UIOnline. Had to re-register when I just got laid off around xmas. I was wondering why i kept getting logged out (wrong password maybe?) but when I clicked on Forgot Password to get a temp one, it seemed like i would never receive the reset emails.

After dealing with the phone system, they said they redid the system in october, so i figured, what the hell… i re-registered for UI Online and i immediately got a reply email.

So give that a shot.
