I'm going to be applying for jobs soon and I'd like to apply as a girl, but I'm scared that because my ID will list me as male and won't have my chosen name that I won't be able to get hired anywhere. I also currently live with my parents and haven't came out to anyone, so I'm scared that if I apply as a girl my family will find out somehow. Advice? (I'm 19 and live in Ontario, Canada btw)

So, this document is two years old, but it explains your rights as a transgender employee. This might also be helpful to show employers. However, you will need to provide your legal name and gender to verify your identity when you’re hired. (This is standard almost everywhere, but I haven’t found a document that states otherwise so I assume it’s true.) If your parents pick you up from work, you get work-related mail delivered to your home, or you have a gendered uniform or a nametag with your preferred name, it is possible that your parents could find out, so you’ll have to be careful and also consider coming out to your parents soon, because this seems like a difficult secret to hide for a long period of time.

some thoughts~

For the longest time I just figured I wasn’t good enough artistically to be where I want to be. I started to fell like I would NEVER be, because when I bust my ass and give it my all the results are still abysmal. I can’t even get good feedback from potential employers. I get positive compliments, but then when I ask why I wasn’t chosen I get cookie cutter responses that give me no insight. 

But you know, I’m done with that self-deprecation. Honestly my previous job in retail taught me it’s not just me needing to improve because that’s ALWAYS a factor. (don’t even get me started on the sexism there goddd it was so bad) 

It’s also my worth not being recognized. I’m not being given a chance that a lot of people are given and I know that for a fact. I’ve had clients agree to facetime and then see me and be like…oh! I don’t look the part of a typical concept artist. I don’t look the part of a game dev team member. I just don’t.  I’m damn good and I’m not being given the chances that I deserve. I noticed that a lot of my peers that are very successful are either white, male, or both.  I also reminded myself that many of the companies I was courting in the past were 100% white and male. Just the entire team. Representation might be making gains, but the sexism and racism in entertainment BEHIND the scenes, the artists, the writers, the designers, is still disgustingly skewed. I’ve seen men of color, and i’ve seen white women, but black women? In game dev? In concept art? Where? FIND THEM. You won’t because there are literally a handful across this country. TV is actually my best bet, it’s diversifying a lot quicker than the other two. But either way, the odds are so fucking stacked and now that I’ve seen it for myself I’m more determined and upset and out for some justice than I am depressed. It’s a nice change of attitude even if the realization is upsetting. 

And it’s not just full-on racism and sexism, but a byproduct. I honestly I feel like when these companies imagine their newest team member during application season, they simply aren’t picturing anyone that looks like me. The later I reveal my race or gender, the further into the interviewing process I get. I’ve stopped revealing it on my applications and the difference is crazy. 

Are my skills the best? Hell no. Do I think I deserve all these positions? Not even. I know i gotta earn them and I have a lot of learning to do. But I’ll ALWAYS have learning to do, so that factor isn’t going anyway. The real question is am I currently skilled enough to do some of these jobs? And the answer is hell fuckin’ yeah!  I know I am. But I realize now I can’t be simpl “skilled enough”. I have to be 10x better than the best. Which is bullshit, but at least I know what I’m facing here.

You can’t allow yourself to look at your life like a pattern. I know that once you’ve been constantly rejected it seems like you’ll always be rejected. You can’t know that. Life is erratic. Things will happen when you least expect it and you have to have faith in that. You have to remember that life is unpredictable and sometimes that’s to your disadvantage but other times that will be your saving grace.

According to a study by the University of Oxford that calculated the odds of which jobs are likely to become automated in the future, accountants, drivers, retail salespeople, barbers, bank tellers, carpenters, cashiers, telemarketers, butchers, bakers, servers, and cooks are all at a high risk of eventually being replaced by robots.

However, the best way to shorten your job hunt and get the job you want is to have a plan in place from the start.
