LGBTQ Resources

 

Purdue's Center for Career Opportunities proudly serves LGBTQ students and is a 2014 GOLD LEVEL LGBTQ CAREER CENTER, certified by the Out for Work Organization for providing career information, tools, resources, and programs to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer students.

The CCO is committed to serving LGBTQ Students. In addition to providing joint programming in collaboration with LGBTQ-affiliated student groups and the Purdue LGBTQ Center, we also provide career counseling and walk-in services to help LGBTQ students with individual needs and questions.

 

WORKPLACES can be quite different, in terms of the openness and support of LGBTQ employees. CCO career services consultants are here to address questions on coming out at work and during the job search.
