Job applications online provides job resources and online applications for restaurants, retail and department stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, and companies in many different industries.

The site provides you with an overview of the online application systems available to you for popular employers. We analyze the application system, websites, and technologies used to process job applicants. The goal is to help you, the applicant, understand how to successfully apply online for a job with a certain company.

Over the years, businesses have changed their hiring methodologies and the application process has moved online. That’s why you’re here. First, we take a look at each company’s website. Then we break down the steps involved in using the web site to apply for an open position. Many times the online process can be ambiguous or difficult to understand – we try to make it clearer in order to help you understand what the employer needs and is asking of you.

Unemployment Extension 2014 By Alison DoyleDecember 12, 2013

Update December 13, 2013: To date, there is still no Congressional action on renewing the unemployment extensions that expire on December 28, 2013.  Without an extension all federally funded unemployment benefits will be cut off.
Please keep in mind that legislation to renew Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) can be passed retroactively early next year. Alternatively, Congress could return to pass an extension. If you are collecting unemployment benefits continue to file for benefits, so your compensation won't be disrupted if unemployment is extended.
Your state unemployment office may provide notification saying no further extension benefits can be paid. However, that doesn't mean that there isn't a chance of benefits being continued for 2014.
