LGBTQA+ Students

Career Services is committed to helping students of the LGBTQA+ community in all aspects of career exploration. We understand you may face some additional challenges or questions related to the job search and your sexual orientation or gender identity. There often aren’t defined rules to answer these questions, so we encourage you to talk through potential scenarios with a career advisor to find the best solution for you. 

Common Questions:

  • How can I figure out if an employer will be supportive and suit my needs and values? 
  • If and when should I come out during the job search process? 
  • How do I use my preferred name in the job search process? 
  • What are my options for professional attire?
  • How can I determine if an employer is safe?
  • What strengths might I bring to the workplace?

Schedule an advising appointment through Handshake to discuss these and other questions with one of our career advisors.
