Here you will find resources to inform your job search and professional success categorized by social identity.
People inhabit multiple identities based on their ability status, gender/gender identity and/or sexuality, national origin, citizenship status, and/or race. The impact of these identities is unique to each student’s experiences, search processes, and goals and can influence both the experiences a student has as well as the laws protecting the student against discrimination.
To discuss how these issues may impact your unique job search experience, please schedule an appointment with Jessica Fox-Wilson.
