Signing off chômage

I'm starting a new job next week. I am now preparing to sign off chômage and I was wondering about the job search form.

I need to fill out a form each month with the jobs applied for during the month - according to the agreement with my advisor, I need to submit 10 applications per month.

As I'm deregistering from next week, this won't be a full month. Now, I get the idea that in order to keep receiving money, I need to keep applying for jobs until I actually start my new job - this is fine.

But for this final period less than a month, do I need to apply for 10 jobs in order not to be penalised? It feels really unnatural and I don't like deceiving potential employers.

I don't want to ask the chômage office because in the past they have given me what appeared to be deliberate bad advice - it seems that their primary aim is to minimise payouts, which kind of makes sense.

Has anyone had experience with this?

Do 2-3 a week, then you will get money if entitled this month

Re: Signing off chômage

Tell your advisor that you have found a new position and most likely she will tell you not to bother doing anything. That is what happened to me on two occasions now.
