  • Revamped Indigo SearchFortress.wa.gov is a government website dedicated to finding work for unemployed residents of Washington State. At this site you can search through more than 15,000 jobs listed, all within Washington. You can do a basic search for jobs close to your residence, or you can do an advanced search, which will allow you to choose the zip code, job type, hours, etc.

    The site is entirely free, and designed to help struggling Washington residents. For employers, you can list your job opportunities and find high quality, hard working local residents to help you out. Whether you are looking for laborers, telemarketers, or something that needs a college education, you can find what you are looking for.

    The site also offers a listing of government jobs in your area. There is no job more secure than a job with the state. State workers get fantastic benefits and great pay, and are virtually never laid off.

    To search for a job or look for employees, go to:
    This link will take you directly to the search form. All you have to do is fill in your location and press “search”. Or, if you are looking for a more specific job, you can choose more options on the basic search screen, or click on “advanced job search” to choose from even more options.

    How Do You Handle Telemarketers?There are many sites out there that will help you find employment. However, how do you know if they are trustworthy? If you use Fortress.wa.gov, you are using an official government website. Your resume and personal information is completely safe with them.

    http://fortress.wa.gov/ offers many different links to other helpful sites. They have resources available for you use, all of which cost nothing. You can train for a new, higher paying job, or become an apprentice. Or you can get help properly constructing your resume. Resumes are very important. If an employer sees a well constructed, properly formatted resume, they are likely to hire you. However, if they see a sloppy, miss-formatted resume, they will most likely not hire you. The site will also help you properly construct your cover letter, which will also improve your odds of being hired.

    When you register for http://fortress.wa.gov/ you will be able to store your resume and other personal info on the site. You may submit your resume to potential employers, or just search through job opportunities.

    The state of Washington enforces and encourages fair treatment of employees. http://fortress.wa.gov/ contains links to several sites that provide you with labor laws, fair wages, and other info to protect your rights as a worker. While these resources are not actually on the site itself, the site provides links to many of the resources for your convenience.

    The best link I found on http://fortress.wa.gov/ was a list of jobs in Washington State and how much they pay per hour. This would be very helpful for someone who is looking for a higher paying job but doesn’t know where to look. Also, if you plan to go to college soon, this list will help you choose what to major in, in order to make the most money. You can view this list at:
    Just click on the second link on that page, and you can view the list. You can also sort the list by clicking on the icons at the top. You can sort by per hour wage, average wage, etc. It is very helpful, especially in this tough economy, to see what jobs are still paying well. There are a lot of obscure jobs out there that pay much more than a normal job.


    Heritage Fountain and Capitol BuildingGo2ui.com is a great resource provided free of charge for all. The site’s main purpose is to provide job opportunities, as well as unemployment information, to Washington State residents. This site is perfect for people who have been out of work for a while, and are looking to learn about and apply for unemployment benefits.

    Specifically, this site focuses on the unemployment benefits in Washington State, and how you can apply for them. It teaches you the basics of unemployment, how to apply, where to apply, what you will receive, etc. They also have the option to apply for unemployment benefits online. Currently you cannot apply for benefits anywhere BUT online (or on the phone), so go2ui.com is very important site.

    Perhaps the most important thing on go2ui.com is that it tells you if you are eligible for unemployment benefits or not. They give you detailed requirements that you must meet in order to apply for benefits, and they also teach you how to apply. They will tell you how much you will be receiving, when your check will come, etc.

    Of course not everyone will qualify for unemployment benefits in Washington, and even for those who do, you will not receive much money. But as anyone who has been in a poor financial situation in the past knows that every little bit helps. It is important to keep a positive attitude when you are struggling financially, and go2ui.com can help you with that. It is very frustrating to wander around the internet for hours on end searching for information, so when you find a site like this one, where everything you could possibly need to know is in one place, you should be thankful.

    When you are on unemployment benefits you are required by the state to submit a weekly claim. Without the claim, you will not be paid for that week. The state of Washington only gives unemployment benefits to people who can prove that they are actively searching for employment, and are willing to prove it weekly. While this can be a royal pain, with the help of go2ui.com you can file your claims online, which significantly cuts down on the time it takes. Plus, you can do it all from the comfort of your own home, and at your leisure.

    State of confusion, Seattle, 03/30/07 Go2ui.com is a great site for people who are having a less-than-great time. When you are unemployed it is hard to see the good in anything, but I am confident that go2ui.com will help you “see the light”, as well as get some extra money each week to help cover food, rent, and other expenses.
