    Hey everyone, I'm so nervous too sign on too JSA. I'm signing on Wednesday and finish college at the beginning of the year. My dad and boyfriend and encouraging me too sign on too help me find a job. I have a few questions;
    1. Can they check you've been applying for jobs? I wouldn't lie but then again I won't be applying for jobs I don't want? I'm looking for jobs everyday so looking wouldn't be a problem. Do they have a diary log or?
    2. I have anxiety and I freak out over conflict. Will the advisor be harsh in anyway? I can't deal with those situations and I'm hoping because I'm no good at public transport they send me too a closer job centre for my anxiety.
    3. Can they check your buying history? I'm buying study books atm. Please help!

    1. I'm afraid beggars can't be choosers, and if you're asking for taxpayers to support you, then you will be expected to accept any reasonable offer of a job. There is no 'not applying for jobs I don't want' - lots of people have to do jobs they don't really want. You'll be expected to keep a detailed log of your search for employment and this will be challenged if there is a suspicion that you are selectively not applying for enough jobs.
    2. You'll need convincing medical evidence of this before it could be considered formally.
    3. Why would they want to? Unless you're concealing assets (i.e. you have a large amount of savings over the allowable limit' what you buy is irrelevant.

    Hi, thanks for replying. no honestly I will apply for jobs just not all of them, I'm just nervous that's all new thing. Trust me I won't be proud going on it. My boyfriends family are very negative about it, and thlast question was irrelevant, I don't know why I just thought they could look into your computer or something. Stupid I know, I've never done all this before

    The advisor will be able to give you more detailed advice at your appointment. Best of luck in finding employment.
