The final step in the job search process is taking action to achieve your career goals. It involves preparing your marketing materials, searching for jobs, interviewing, and following up with potential employers. As we learned in Step 2, the job search process is not a linear process. You will likely be working on the activities in various steps at the same time.
Conducting a job search is a full-time effort. To be successful, it is important to have support. You can find support at your local workforce center, working with a career coach, and attending job search support groups and networking groups.
There are a multitude of online resources for job seekers. These sites have a wealth of information to help you through each step of the job search process.
