    So while filling out my equip I keep getting an error message saying to enter in my employment activity with no breaks in the past seven years. The problem is this I have only entered in one employer so far...
    I had previously entered in all my previous jobs but it said the same exact thing even when I put in the breaks.
    I'm listing my jobs as (other) then choosing the (unemployment) option for my breaks.
    I guess my question is what am I doing wrong?

    Any help is appreciated thank you.

    Just keep filling it out, the error message will leave once you have entered everything from a job seven years ago to present, without any breaks of course.


    It all begins February 16th 2010!

    Try asking your recruiter. That's what my son had to do because of the error message. Try being 18 and having only held one job when they want 7 years of unbroken employment history. I think the recruiter told him to write a note in the explanation box?

    It will not allow you to submit it with any errors, so I am guessing that the years of work experience depends on age. If I remember correctly it is 7 years OR since 16 years of age.

    Or perhaps your son was "unemployed" with an explanation to get around this error, hmmm...

    Not to highjack the thread... but I hae a similar question regarding employment history and the E-Qip.

    If you have been at an employer for 6 yrs. and been promoted during that time to different positions, do you list each position held with the same company? Or can you list the employer with your duration of employment and your current position? Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    I should also add that I have had no break in employment with the employer. Thanks again for any help.

    Just list the employer once, the investigators will ask the rest! List your current position.

    my 17 year old daughter, soon to be 18, graduated early from High School and only had 1 job for about 5 weeks at age 17. While completing her E-qip online application for USCG service, it would not let her submit the E-Qip, because an error message stating 2 year minimum employment and continuous employment to date must be listed. We tried several methods....but found one that finally worked.
    We went into unemployment tab and clicked unemployed for 10 years with appropriate dates to present, (E-qip really wants to see that ("to present" button clicked) and then we listed in the comment section her employment information and contact info for the 5 week job she had at age 17. It worked, finished the E-qip and submitted it. Done. This is just one method to bypass the employment issues and bugs and E-Qip, if you are a high school student without work experience or very little work experience (do it this way).

    Good info, but you probably should have made this a new thread, since the one you posted to was 11 years old
