It contains seven operational units related to the job search competency of searching for available jobs.

The tasks (and operational units) covered include (1) identify potential employers (compile list of job leads, gather facts about job leads), (2) decide which employers to contact first (relate personal skills and personal preferences to job leads), and (3) follow job leads (prepare message, contact employers by telephone and in person).
