Choosing a Profession

If you know that you want a job that requires a professional license, but you are not sure what kind of career you want to go into, this list might help. If you are looking to be a big fish in a small pond, you might choose a profession where there are not already many existing licenses in the state of Connecticut. However, if you are looking for a profession in which you can collaborate with many colleagues and rely on resources, choosing a profession with a lot of existing licenses might be the better option. There is no right or wrong – it will just depend on what you are looking for, what suits your skills, and what fits your personality. Consulting this list before making a decision can be helpful.

Your License

Once you decide on a professional license in Connecticut, you will have to go through the necessary requirements in order to obtain your license and start working. Unfortunately, getting a professional license means that you could be a target for having that license taken away. While this might be a frightening process, especially after all of the work that you need to go through to get the license in the first place, try not to panic. My team and I are happy to make sure that you are in compliance with license requirements and defend you in the event that a complaint is filed against you. Contact me for more information.
