Being unemployed is not easy, particularly at a time in our economy when new jobs and prospects can be limited for the middle aged worker as well as the new graduate just starting out. Kansas Unemployment Offices have a wide variety of services available to the unemployed worker that can help put you back in charge of your career.
Finding the right job, and finding a place where your skills are needed, used and appreciated is not necessarily an easy task but with the right guidance you can find a job that will reward you both financially and emotionally and be secure enough to provide for you and your family.
Kansas Unemployment offices can help you with that task by offering services such as retraining, for those who have been displaced from another job, and who are seeking a career change to help them to find something more secure as well as more lucrative with regard to their pay.
Kansas Unemployment offices offer help with filing your initial unemployment claims by explaining the process of filing to you, what it takes to be eligible for unemployment compensation and helping you to understand your rights and responsibilities under the unemployment compensation process. Kansas Unemployment office, or the Kansas workforce Development, will also assist you in filing for your federal unemployment compensation extensions or emergency unemployment compensation to facilitate your claims. As with many other states, Kansas recommends that you file your applications online, using the Kansas Unemployment offices web site, which will expedite your unemployment compensation claim and will save you time in the long run.
There are however, as mentioned above, many services which you can find at the Kansas Unemployment office that are worth a visit, including using their computerized job search area if you don’t have a home computer or internet available to you.
Also available to you at the Kansas Unemployment offices are services such as job searches and applications, and counselors who will help you to select the right job where your own skills and experiences match those of the employer who is seeking a new worker. They can send you on an interview with that employer, making your chances of being hired just a little bit better, since you’ve been pre-screened by an employment specialist.
Due the the number of jobs which have been lost in Kansas, and the rising unemployment rates in the state of Kansas, the Kansas unemployment offices have instituted new hours for their users, so that you can access the assistance you need at the Kansas unemployment office more readily when you need them.
The new extended hours, which began in February of 2009 are as follows:
Kansas Department of Laborâ€™s Unemployment Contact Center will temporarily extend its hours of operation from 7:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturdays. What this means to you is that Saturday can also be a day to visit the Kansas Unemployment Offices to find the help you need when you’ve spent a vast portion of the week days seeking new employment.
Taking advantage of the services that the Kansas Unemployment office provides for the displaced worker only makes good sense. When you’re in the market for a new job, the experts there can help you to find what you’re looking for a lot faster than just pounding the pavement trying to find it on your own.
