Florida Work Search Requirements

You are required on a weekly basis to make contact with five prospective employers and keep a record of your efforts. You are then required to provide the following details for each contact during your request for benefits:

 Date of contact
 Method of contact (in person, online, fax, phone, etc.)
 Business name including telephone number and complete address, website URL or an email
 Results of your search
 Type of work sought

An efficient way to contact employers is by using the Employ Florida Marketplace at employflorida.com, the state’s online job matching system where you can search thousands of job postings and apply for jobs. For those claimants living in counties with a population of 75,000 or less the minimum number of job contacts each week is at least three for each week of reemployment assistance requested.


If you are not able to make the required number of employer contacts in a week, meeting with a representative at your local CareerSource Florida center to access reemployment services may satisfy the work search requirement for that week.
