CLEAR Job Talk: LGBTQ Resume Basics

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted nearly all aspects of life for us since it began early last year. The LGBTQ community has been hit particularly hard.

Two-thirds of LGBTQ workers have suffered a loss of employment in the last year, and nearly half have lost a job or been unable to return to work. As a result, many LGBTQ folks are seeking new sources of income and employment.

Finding a new job as an LGBTQ worker can be a challenge at the best of times. LGBTQ job-seekers may have basic questions about navigating the hiring process as well as specific questions about how to do so as an LGBTQ candidate.

To help the many LGBTQ folks who are looking for work, the Center for LGBTQ Economic Advancement & Research is organizing a workshop to discuss the basics of resume writing, including the best ways to format a resume and to present work and volunteer experiences.

CLEAR Job Talk: LGBTQ Resume Basics
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET
Via Zoom

The event is FREE to attend for all attendees. A $10.00 suggested donation is appreciated to support the organization and future CLEAR Job Talks.
