Chomage when you already have accepted a new offer.

My current employment contract expires end of August and I already have a new contract starting in January 2021, leaving me with a 4-month gap.

I do believe that I am eligible for the benefits in the period in between. But my question is it would still need to apply to other jobs and attend interviews with the officers at the employment office?

Also, is it true that the officers are not allowed to talk any other language than the Canton one? I've been hearing this a lot lately and I'm concern that I won't be able to hold a conversation with them, is this legit or more like an urban myth?

Yes, youŽd still have to apply. No idea about meeting your case manager.

All good, provided that you have been working for at least 1 year prior the unemployment.

Sounds pretty stupid if it is. Their job is to get you back into work asap. That said, it depends on the RAV official that gets assigned to you. They may or may not speak your language/English so yes, you may need a translator or to see if you can be transferred to someone else you can communicate with.

You will still need to apply for jobs I think, but in my experience (admittedly from a few years ago and in a different canton), your case officer will lose interest in meeting you once he/she knows that you have found a job. They have way too many active cases to handle to be able to see everyone regularly, even more so at the moment I would imagine.

OP can apply for temporary work for those 4 months as well as full time positions that start earlier.

I absolutely refuse to accept that the OP is obliged to apply for full time positions that start earlier. That would be a silliness beyond what even the most rabidly officious bureaucrat would insist.

Temporary positions - yes, as mitigation. But permanent? Who does that serve? Ridiculous.

The insurance as the job offer 4 months down the road could be cancelled, probably quite likely in the current circumstances.
