Residents in Illinois will no longer receive unemployment benefits if they don’t post a resume online.

Job seekers who file unemployment claims on or after this Sunday, must upload a resume to the Illinois job search site, IllinoisJobLink.

State officials say it’s a way to help unemployed people find work.

The site includes job openings and information about hiring fairs and workshops.
