Out for Work: New Resource for LGBTQA Job Seekers!
For those that are questioning their sexual orientation, or those that are still uneasy about sharing that information with new acquaintences, finding a co-op or job where you feel comfortable being yourself can be difficult. At what point should you come out to your employer, if at all? How do you know if they will be accepting of who you are? These are difficult questions to answer, especially if you would like to make a good impression on your new employer.
Fortunately, there is a new resource available through the Steinbright Career Development Center called Out for Work which provides tools for LGBTQA job seekers to find LGBTQA-friendly companies, advice on how and when to come out in the workplace and other resources to help LGBTQA students like yourself find a co-op or job that makes you comfortable.
The Out for Work Career Resource Library can be accessed from my Reference Page under the Career Databases and Electronic Resources section. To login, please use Username: outforwork, Password: cccp2013, NOT your DrexelOne credentials. The Out For Work Library should also become available in the Databases tab on the Hagerty Library website in the near future.
