Welcome to the LGBTQIA+ Career Community!

Career and Professional Development at St. Edward’s University is committed to supporting all students across the gender and sexuality spectrum. The workplace can present unique concerns for LGBTQIA+ employees: job-seekers may be uncertain about sharing details related to their personal life on a resume, during an interview, or when meeting new colleagues; depending on one’s gender expression, questions might arise pertaining to interview and workplace apparel; finally, job-seekers may want to engage in additional career exploration in order to discover an organization or industry that best aligns with their personal values.

Our Career Coach team is available should you wish to discuss the questions above, or any other aspect of your career exploration and job search.  The professional associations and local/national organizations listed below also provide countless opportunities to connect with LGBTQIA+ professionals working in a variety of industries. The resources listed below reflect only a sample of those available. If you discover a great resource you would like to see listed here, please e-mail us at
