Preparing for a career means more than going to school, and applying for a job. You may need to save money, make a budget in order to pay for school, pay to relocate for school or a new job, and, depending on your career path, plan financially for gaps in work.
If you plan to start a business, you need to ensure that you understand any business loans you may have, are registered appropriately with the state and federal government, and file your taxes the right way.
Career preparation isn’t just for young people starting their career. People of all ages think about career changes, relocation, or what do to if they need a raise or a second job.
