LGBT Career Guide

886

Published on

A career guide for the LGBT population. I created this presentation for my career counseling class last week. This presentation compiles information and resources from “Your Queer Career” by Riley B. Folds, The Human Right Campaign (HRC), Diversity.Inc and other sources. There are several resources that can be helpful for an LGBT students career path that students can use to better navigate their job search and career development. I had a great time working on this presentation, I learned a lot and hope this information can benefit you and the students you serve!
