  • To assist you in determining appropriate job families within Maryland State Government, we have provided crosswalks (or careers in the military service followed by a comparable state employment classification) to recommend positions for which you may qualify based on your military service. 

    Visit our State Jobs page and review job announcements currently open.  Make sure you meet the necessary minimum qualifications prior to applying as different positions require different levels of education and experience.  Below is a chart of military occupations and corresponding state job families.  This is not a comprehensive list of all crosswalks but a large sample.
