WORK SEARCH LOG- For your Personal Records
The following log is for your personal records and will help you keep track of all of the
information that is required for each of your work search contacts. Keep records of your work
search contacts organized in a notebook or folder.
Unless the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions specifically exempts you under our
law from work search requirements, to be eligible for benefits you must make a minimum of two
different work search contacts each week that you are certifying your request for benefit
The Department routinely audits work search requirements. If you are selected during a work
search audit, you will be asked to provide the required information for each of your contacts and
any necessary verification (such as a confirmation page if you are applying for a job online).
