What You Need for Work Registration

When following your work registration requirement, you need personal information, your educational history, and past career contacts. It's also not a bad idea to have several personal references as well. Think of work registration as filling out an online resume. It will follow a similar format and purpose.

With your work registration log, you need to make at least two job contacts a week, including the following information in each log entry:

  • Contact date
  • Information (address, telephone number, e-mail, etc.)
  • Type of contact (in-person, e-mail, etc.)
  • Who you contacted
  • Type of work involved
  • If you applied and how
  • Results of the application
