Good and not-so-good advice about gender.
This is sort of a general question, so I guess I'm just looking to hear other folks' experiences. |
I'm about three months out from finally getting my degree. It's for a profession, so I do have a career all nice and in line, but during college I began transitioning and now I'm sort of "oh, crap, my old bosses don't know... how do I apply for jobs?!"
I'm lucky in that I live in a pretty decent city (Seattle) but how do folks work with this? I've also been feet-dragging on the name-change--is it at all better to leave it (as it'll match the old job records, and maybe when they call for employment verification I can pretend they will not use pronouns?) or to rush it through, as I will have a license and diploma I need to change later?
Anyway, just would love to hear other experiences on re-entering the job market. I've only recently started to be properly read so I suppose that's why I'm so dang nervous about navigating this now. Thanks, all.
