Don't know what a 'dole office' is as I've never visited one, but the 'labour exchange' I visited in 1967 when I left school certainly did interview you and offer jobs based on your qualifications and physical fitness etc.
I went to the Labour Exchange upon leaving school in 1963. They were pleased to learn that I already had a job offer and would be starting an RAF Apprenticeship in seven weeks time. They then told me to turn up every Friday until I started with the RAF and crossed my palm with what to ex-schoolboy me, seemed like much silver. It is the only time I have ever been "On the Dole".
