Resumes, Interviews & Networking – A Quick Course on LGBTCareerLink

Out & Equal’s LGBTCareerLink was launched in 2008 as a resource for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workforce. We wanted to create a hub where job seekers could find jobs, learn about employment at diversity-friendly companies, and research careers. Companies that value diversity show their support by sponsorships, and by listing their job openings in our database. Everyone deserves to work for a company or organization that treats their employees fairly, equally, and with respect. Employers that actively recruit LGBT employees are making the smart business decision to create a fair workplace, leading to a reputation of being inclusive and progressive, as well as increased job satisfaction and productivity from their employees.

Brush Up on Your Networking and Self-Promotion Skills
Networking, writing the perfect resume, discovering new interview skills–if you are seeking employment or a career change, you will find the Career Resource Center filled with practical tips and advice that can help you gain knowledge and boost your confidence in your job search. Click here to be taken to the Resource Center menu and to start your research. Give yourself a little bit of time–there is quite a bit of information here!

Learn More about Employers
Click on the Company tab and see who has just signed up on CareerLink. Browse company profiles as well–the more you know about a company, the better chance you have of understanding the job position, and what may be important to them in terms of skills and attributes.

Diving In: the Job Search
Search thousands of jobs in the CareerLink database by industry, keyword, company, city, state, or posting date. You can even set up job search agents that will email you a notice when interesting new opportunities are posted. Click here to set up a search alert. Create a professional profile and you’ll be added to our People page, where employers can browse for potential matches. Click on Jobs to start your search and to see recently added positions and to read our Top Employment News.

We encourage you to spend some time on the LGBTCareerLink website, and to take advantage of all of the opportunities that it offers. Getting your name and resume out there is a big part of the process of landing your dream job, or making that career change. By having a solid resume and stellar interviewing skills, and by doing your research about your employment field and potential employers, you will enter your job search with motivation and confidence (which happen to be two very important qualities that employers look for!).
