4.Register your profile on career websites

5.Create a LinkedIn profile and  use it in your networking

Here are tips you may use in your journey going forward:

1.While waiting to be called for an interview:

A) Do anything legal that can keep you busy, like Volunteer. This is experience that you van put on your CV

B )Start a small business or get together with others and develop a co-operative. Who knows, this could be the start of great things
