It’s not easy being a job seeker. There are resumes to perfect; contacts to network with; databases to scroll through; references to check on; cover letters to write…

It’s not easy being trans, non-binary and/or gender nonconforming. You are not sure if you should come out to employers; you are worried co-workers will express transphobia; you are mis-gendered in an interview…

It’s not easy!

However, there are resources and support out there to help your job search become just a little bit easier. You are not the first person to this and you won’t be the last! (These resources are also helpful for allies and family members to consider when supporting a trans person.)

I went to a career fair, now what?!

Spring and fall semesters are a busy time for students and recruiters as there are so many career fairs, networking, and recruiting events. Last spring, just at Stevenson University alone, we hosted a multitude of events, from Careers in Sports, to the Maryland Career Consortium Fair and the Diversity Career Expo, Careers in Publishing and Beyond, Careers in Government, Careers in Law and finally the C3 Fair (Corporate and Community Connections Fair)...

PHEW! That's A LOT of networking.

So, you went armed with your resume, your 30 second commercial, your research on the companies that were in attendance, and of course you were professionally dressed, and had the perfect handshake and eye contact! But what do you do after the fair/event is over and how do you keep in touch with the recruiters or the representatives that you met with at these events?...Click here to read more.

The career fair is around the corner and you've done the best you can to prepare...

  • You came in for walk-in hours and had your resume reviewed and approved by a career services counselor.
  • You took the time to find the right outfit so you can look your best, because you know that professional attire makes a huge impression on employers. 
  • You registered for the event, and added it to you calendar so you can arrive on time and ready to network.

Is that it? Are you ready? Nope. There’s more to be done....Click here to read more.
