How Can I Setup a SQL Job Step Alert on SQL 2016?

I am running SQL Server 2016 on Windows Server 2016 and have two large SQL Jobs. One runs in the early morning and one in the evening.

I've already setup Database mail and have tested successfully, so I get email alerts for completed jobs. I'd like to go a layer deeper.

I'd like to create an email alert if a job runs over a certain amount of time. There are 15 steps in this particular SQL Job, but a handful of them get hung-up often (mostly because some folks are allowed to upload Excel docs that the Job updates).

Is there a way to create a New Alert such that a given job step would send me a notification if it took over a certain amount of time? (e.g. ~30 minutes).

Thanks for your help.
