Best of Luck!
As already stated, unemployment does not count as income. Once employed, most lenders require 30 days worth of paystubs. Your wife will also probably need an Employment Letter from her new job. It'll need to be on company letter and signed by an authorized company rep. It will also need to state her start date, annual salary, hours and hourly rate, and job stability. Whether she's getting benefits or not is optional. If over time is available it will not be counted since she'll need a 2 years history to use it. Hope this helps.
