Indiana Work Registration Program

Indiana's work registration program is known as Indiana Career Connect. This site allows residents to create their own personal work profile including a resume with all relevant information as well as complete work search requirements. Users can search for relevant jobs, contact potential employers, utilize job training services, and much more.

Those using Indiana Career Connect can also file appeals, manage their unemployment work search requirements, respond to requests for information, and report work and earnings. It is absolutely imperative that you use this service to search for work and track your job hunt.

You must make at least two job contacts a week, a common work search requirement for unemployment. Accepted contacts include:

  • Turning in an application
  • Doing an interview
  • Filing an application in with Indiana Career Connect
  • Attending a job fair
