That sucks. Can you tell someone at the unemployment office and just explain the situation for them? Otherwise, just go to the job interview. So what. They won't hire you anyway since you were fired and you jump through a hoop or two and then you can have all the free money you want.

allright go for the application...it maybe akward but it could land you a job again...possibly. if not then draw unemployement until another offer arises...easy. unless you're a slacker and want to draw on tax payers dollars and not even try, in that case you would be a failure. :) have a nice day and good luck with the interview!

How is this an FML?? This is a win-win situation. If they somehow don't realise and hire you back, there's your job back with increased pay. If they don't hire you (which is likely), then you'll get your unemployment. The stupid thing would be if you didn't apply.

OP got fired...went on unemployment...they call OP and tell them of a job opening that they need to apply to in order to get benefits....the job is the employer OP got fired from and at a higher rate of pay. So I would just tell unemployment then, OP. Don't they have records where you worked last

But chances are she won't be hired for a position from which she was just fired. The situation you described is the best possible outcome, while in reality she will probably be laughed at for applying for the position. But in all reality, do the interview and be as confident as you can be. Don't let your previous employer get to you and the joke will be on them.

bomb the interview. it is easy to do. so apply, do all the stuff unemployment wants, and show up to the interview wearing shorts, an old t-shirt, shoes with no socks, and as the final touch be hungover. call your former boss or whoever is doing the interview a douchebag. whatever.
