The Role of the Job Seeker Classification Instrument

The Job Seeker Classification Instrument (JSCI) is a set of questions a job seeker is asked in an interview with the Department of Human Services (DHS) or their employment services provider.

The JSCI looks at a job seeker’s likelihood of becoming or remaining long term unemployed.

The JSCI has up to 49 questions. Generally, a job seeker who has a higher level of disadvantage will answer more questions. The minimum number of questions a job seeker will answer is 18.
