Hi, im 18 and have done 2 years of college ion electrical installation and Mulitskilled engineering. City and Guilds who are the examining body are now changing the electrical installation course so if i dont do the 3rd year then i wont be able to come back to it later on in life and i will have to start electrical agagin, so i am going to do the 3rd year, for this i need to stay in the town where i am currently.
i am going in the navy next year hopefully but the jobs around my area are very sparse at the minute and although i have been trying there is nothing as of yet, so it looks like i have to go on jopb seekers and housing benefit, i didnt want to do this.
Will it look bad in my navy interview if i am on job seekers allowance? will it look bad on me and will it make a difference, i know you may find this petty but it has been worrying me and i just thought it wouldnt hurt asking.
thanks

Apply now because waiting times are long. By you'll still be a student when your interview comes around. Job's a good un :p

You will be a student completing the third year of a three year course, won't you, bjb? That's quite a normal situation for an applicant to the Royal Navy to be in.

One thing I might suggest is that you take advice about JSA and HB, just to make sure that you are eligible while still a student.

I'm on the rock 'n roll, got laid off the Friday before my final interview. Can't see it going against you, reckon a lot of people signing up at the minute are in the same situation.

When you're signing on you can join in my game of finding the most laughable jobs advertised on their computers if you like. For example, today I saw an advert for a Diary Co-ordinator. Now, call me pedantic but isn't that just a secretary?
 
Its a great game that is. As well as the one were you look around and guess how many of the other people who are waiting to sign on are off their tits

You will be eligible for JSA if your course is classed as part time by your college. You will need confirmation of this and you will aso have to supply a learning agreement. You will not be eligible for contribution based JSA as you will not have paid enough NI conts, you will however, be able to claim income based JSA and you can do this online from the Directgov website. If you intend to claim housing benefit make sure you do this at the same time; although if you are living with family you will not get it. You can also claim council tax benefit through your Local Authority - you will need proof of benefit from JCP for this.

I have seen many young people at various stages of the application process for all three services (I worked for Jobcentre Plus until last month) and as long as you are genuinely looking for work and trying to better yourself there is no stigma attached.

Good luck with it all.
