Maryland Careers and Degrees: A Recipe for Success

Maryland career paths take many forms in the Old Line State. The public and private sector employers present a well-rounded employment landscape with jobs in several categories. These include MD careers in natural resources, manufacturing, information systems, construction, finance, education, health services, professional and business services, and leisure and hospitality.

Overview of Maryland Careers

In 2008, an estimated 162,900 small businesses formed the bedrock foundation of Maryland's economy. According to the Department of Labor, Regulation and Licensing, an estimated 90 percent of the job market is employed in a service industry of some sort. The largest segments of employment in 2008 were in the professional and business services and trade, transportation and utilities employment categories. Among small businesses employing nine or less employees the largest market share of MD careers in 2008 were in computer systems design, residential building, and management and technical consulting services.

The major employment sectors in the Maryland job market include:

  • Fishing and forestry
  • Manufacturing production

Maryland has experienced its share of economic turmoil but has maintained a rebounding spirit. An example is that even in the midst of the national economic recession in October 2010, the number of Maryland jobs reached an estimated 2,745,495, up over 10,000 jobs from the month before.

Maryland Degrees and Career Opportunities

Many Maryland careers require an associate's, bachelor's, or master's degree as a minimum requirement for employment. The unemployed or underemployed qualify for financial aid to earn MD degrees from local community colleges and universities or from an online school. Maryland schools have developed programs designed to qualify graduates for employment in the present economic environment.
