This week, we move on to the third step of the tour, Step 3: Save an Occupation, in order to continue completing all the steps to gain the full benefits from your Ohio Means Jobs account.

Once you get to this screen, you can search a variety of ways in order to “save an occupation.” 

For example, I will use the “Industry Search” feature.   See picture below:

This concludes the “Save an Occupation” step of the Ohio Means Jobs Guided Tour.
