Identity and Career Choices and Challenges
Randy & Lois Wood Campus Center, Mary Cole Nichols Dining Hall-B
How does your identity or expression of your identity impact your career opportunities? How do you present the best version of “you” to a potential employer? Have or will you consider “coming out” on your new job? How do you identify bias and exclusion in the workplace due to your identity?
Lamont Holley, Medical Case Management Coordinator for Nashville Cares, will facilitate a discussion towards answering these and other questions as many among the LGBTQ+ communities consider their careers and aspirations beyond Vol State. Mr. Holley will equip you with how to navigate career and job searches while considering factors of identity and how hiring entities factor in identity and identity expression into their hiring practices.
