Based on the way this is worded I automatically assumed the competitor placed a general job offer to those who already had experience in the field and OP quit his before applying.
I could be wrong but that was my first impression.

You should get some sort of written agreement or contract before quitting your old job, but that's easy to say in hindsight.
At least you'll know not to make the same mistake next time.

If you quit for a good reason, like another offer or proven unfair work practices, or even if you have to move due to a spouse being relocated, you can file for unemployment. I got it once for quitting a job for another one and the new one immediately laid me off.

29. But that was you getting laid off. OP quit without being hired by the other place. Unemployment, though covering quitting under certain circumstances, but this isn't one that's covered. It wasn't that the job was unsafe or unreasonable. It wasn't to care for a sick relative. Not covered.

If OP had an offer, then yes, it is covered. Just because the offer was retracted doesn't mean it wasn't there in the first place or a legitimate reason to leave. OP said "offer" which in job terms means he had the job. It's not like it was a consideration, it was an actual promise of work.
