Overview of the Six-Step Job Search Process

All job searches share three common characteristics:


1. Job seekers want something (likely more than one thing) in their next job.

2. Job seekers meet with prospective employers who can provide opportunities.

3. Job seekers and employers decide to work together.


Follow the six-step process to ensure you are doing everything you need to do to get the job you want. Having a process keeps you moving forward to your end goal. Hover over feet for more information:

Many job seekers are overwhelmed at the beginning of their job search. There seems to be so much to do-résumés, interviews, and social media. It is not surprising that many job seekers are afraid of networking.


A sequential job search process means
that you don’t have to worry about what
comes next. Focus on where you are for
your search, and give yourself time on that
step. Before you worry about résumés, let
yourself explore possibilities, ideals, and desires.


Before you get too anxious about interviewing, know that you will have the preparation of knowing yourself, positioning yourself effectively, and learning about the people and companies you will meet through in-depth research. There will be time for the job search to progress.

As you move through your job search sequentially, this doesn’t mean that you never revisit what you’ve already done. For example, if you are at the stage where you are meeting people, you are collecting information from these meetings. You might learn that a particular skill or experience is even more important than you initially thought.

You may decide to go back to your marketing to highlight these items even more in your résumé or structure future cover letters. These marketing changes will happen while you are still interviewing. In the thick of your job search, you will be juggling the six steps concurrently.

Here are some key fundamentals you will need to launch your job search and with these fundamentals in place, you can use the process to take you through the mechanics of your search. Click on picture for more information:
