Consultations and appointments with the RAV

During the first appointment with the RAV your situation and essential details will be recorded. For us to give you optimum and efficient advice, you must inform the RAV fully about your skills and your previous activities. Please therefore bring copies of your degrees or diplomas, employment certificates, school certificates, etc. with you to the registration interview.


During this interview you will decide on an unemployment fund. You will receive the form you need to apply for unemployment compensation.


After this first appointment you will be assigned to a personal advisor. He or she will work out with you answers to questions and solutions to problems in connection with your unemployment. Your personal advisor will regularly invite you for consultations in order to judge how your situation is developing and to discuss further steps with you.


The RAV normally works with appointments. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
