To Register for Work, claimants must complete the following two steps:

  • First, visit MiTalent.org to create a job seeker profile on Pure Michigan Talent Connect.
  • Second, meet with staff from a local SEMCA Michigan Works! American Job Center, either virtually or in person.
Virtual appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • Wayne County residents (excluding the City of Detroit) – Contact your local American Job Center to schedule a virtual appointment. 

Claimants will receive an email confirmation when registration is complete and verified. If claimants do not meet with Michigan Works! American Job Center staff to verify their registration, it could delay the payment of unemployment benefits.

Work Search - Let SEMCA Michigan Works! Help You

Claimants must register for work in addition to completing and reporting to the UIA their work search activities. Those filing for benefits must report at least one work search activity for each week they claim benefits. Work search activities include, but are not limited to, applying for jobs in person or online, attending job fairs, creating a profile or resume on a professional networking or job site such as MiTalent.org, and participating in online job search workshops or seminars. Contact your local SEMCA American Job Center to learn more.
