How to apply for unemployment benefits

Applebee’s is now allowing Illinois job seekers to apply online.

The restaurant chain announced Friday that the application process has been opened up to Illinois applicants.

Applebee’s announced the new service last week and said it would provide job seekers with a temporary online tool to complete the application.

The application must be submitted electronically and be complete within 30 days of the company’s first business day on July 1.

The company said it will continue to work with employers to provide them with training.

The app will be available for use in Illinois for the next few weeks.
