People in a business meeting

Your initial steps in career planning should include determining your interests, career goals, and applicable education requirements. For instance, you may want to pursue or use a vocational or college degree to start a business as a career path in entrepreneurship. The Maryland Higher Education Commission, the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the U.S. Small Business Administration each offer assistance in career gateways such as determining your personal interests, identifying veteran friendly employers, and resume writing and interview preparation. ​
