    I was hoping someone would start a thread on this subject, found people's experiences interesting. I have just finished the WP and am awaiting my first appt/confrontation at the JC. No doubt feathers will fly but there is no way I am going in twice a week. Will let yall know what happens.
    So far I am just going in to sign once every two weeks and she is going to call me next week, that's it

    forgot to say she did say she thought the WP was coming to an end as it has failed, just a matter of time

    Also all the feedback she was hearing was negative.

    It can only increase if you are doing jack all, all day long

    I told the JC my laptop goes on at 8am and turns off about 2am and I look for jobs 7 days a week which I do and can prove it from the applications I make.

    She said you have to treat it as a full time job so at least 9-5

    This is obviously your right but be prepared to have your benefit sanctioned if you are booked and notified to attend more frequently than you currently do so, your reasons will be referred to a decison maker and you may lose benefit if you fail to attend without good cause.
    Only your feathers will fly as no skins off the staff nose if you end up with a benefit sanction.

    I noticed you take repaeted jobsearch as you have stated in your previous thread, i would imagine this will be noticed once you start seeing the same person and they start ringing the employers whose jobs you state you have applied for.
