Work Search Requirements

Kentucky Work Registration Program

Kentucky work search requirements include signing up for work on the Focus Career website. This site is designed to help put you on the job market and to help you find employment opportunities.

Focus Career offers, in essence, a resume with benefits, including schedules on job fairs, employment training seminars, and more. Signing up for the program requires:

  • Logging in using the information from your unemployment site (including your login name and password)
  • Creating an online resume
  • Searching for job leads regularly
  • Replying to job offers and accepting interviews
  • Performing training seminars, as necessary

The benefits of work registration are significant, especially as you can use contacts made on Focus Career as one of your three weekly job contacts. Make sure to fill your unemployment work search requirements by signing up for Focus Career immediately. You won't receive benefits until you do.
