My question involves unemployment benefits for the state of: California
I was laid off from my job in January and searched hi & low for work and had NO luck at all. I've therefore decided to enroll in grad school business classes. I sent back my unemployment form explaining that I started school, and I now have a phone interview with the department in the next two weeks.
Under what circumstances will I still be able to collect unemployment? In all honesty, I wouldn't be taking courses if I could find work or if I still had a job. In this market though, this is the best way to keep my skills sharp and appear attractive to employers. If I got offered a job I would drop the classes or take them by correspondence or switch to a night program. The bottom line, what questions will they ask and will I be eligible to continue collecting?
