I remember when I had to sign on a year ago, they had lots of pointless meetings scheduled in for me. I was supposed to go to a CV workshop, a 'How to do well in interviews' workshop, and a 'Where to look for jobs' workshop. All of those workshops meant a return bus fare when I didn't even have a proper income (other than my Government pigeon-feed).
Honestly, I was more educated than the woman signing my bloody claim.
Even when I was there, they sent me to 'Triage' where some woman called Sandra (typical name you'd expect from someone who left school with no qualifications and thought 'I'll join the council, easy money and no stress' printed off a load of jobs for which I was no more qualified than I am to be an astronaut and then made me apply for them.
Fortunately I'm in employment now, but is this benefit made hard to claim for?

Surely if you're unemployed, no job is too good for you? A job which allows you to keep yourself above water as you apply to a more suitable job is better than nothing.
