    I want to get a job where my coworkers will be accepting of my sexuality and help me explore it(if we become friends). This means they would have to be around 22-28 years old and be openly social. What are jobs that fall into this area? I'm thinking being a bartender or waiter. Any other suggestions?

    Also, A google search just reveals some porn sites and hiv warning sites.

    You want your coworkers to help you explore your sexuality? Start working at a sauna.

    I think it's best not to shit where you eat, though. Figuratively speaking. Your sexuality has nothing to do with where you will be a successful employee.

    When I first started my job, my boss hated gays...totally homophobic.
    I stuck it out and showed him we're not as bad as he thought.
    Now we're almost like best friends, and hug when we see each other (which is seldom).

    Many many large corporations have gay positive work enviroments now so really the options are huge when you look at all the departments that all of these large companies have. Most large corps will have the list below plus more
    So going to work for an airline doesn't mean because you're gay you have to be an air hostess, you could work in


    accounting
    security
    marketing
    operations
    human resources
    sales
    customer service
    staffing
    maintenance

    Don't sleep with people from work, These are people you'll have to see every day, and it can and will become uncomfortable very quickly, not something you want to do.

    or to put it another way

    Being gay is a part of who you are, but it shouldn't be WHO you are.
    What are your interests and talents? What are your life goals? Answering those questions will mean a whole lot more in the long run than finding some job with co-workers you can sleep with.

    I'm a project Manager at a high tech firm. My team is mostly women (go figure!). I found that the type that go into my field are ones who are vocal and have strong opinion. Everyone in my team gets along and I'm out to them, my boss (female) and our VP (male).

    They are genuinely interested in what's happening in my life. The guys on my team are, but it's almost like they are just being nice- like commenting on the weather.

    I'd find a job that caters to your personality.

    If you are currently in a job that your co-workers are not that accepting, I would most likely put my 2 weeks in..

    I work in IT, and if it were not for my awesome coworkers, I dont think I would be at this place.. The people here make it awesome.

    So find a job that you have the skills for and then find the right company for you.

    I agree with previous comments -not a good idea to date/sleep with/fuck-around with co-workers. But as for social, fun, environments where people tend to be a little more open-minded my suggestions:

    Restaurant/bar-work -fun and social work, depending on the restaurant, it usually attracts a younger fun group of peers.....(just don't blow all your tips at the bar) -This skill kept a roof over my head and food on the table while I was trying to figure out what to do w/ the rest of my life....plus it's flexible scheduling so easy to go to school or do something else at the same time.

    Gym/Fitness Centers -start at the front desk, and if you like it you can always expand from there to fitness trainer, or group X instructor or both, the big-chain gyms are almost always hiring....not always the best $ but a fun environment and you'll get to look at hot guys coming and going all day long! --a side benefit is you might end up with a rockin'-body!

    Salon/spa attendant/front desk =if you end up liking the environment, you can always turn that into a career in cosmetology/skin-care or massage---the money can be really good once you get established and flexible scheduling

    Or you can always set up your own web-cam and just charge people $20/week to watch you!

    Yea... I wrote this post half-asleep last night so i wasn't really as specific as i could've been. I don't mean i'm gonna sleep with my coworkers and this isn't a career. Just a job for the next year while I'm getting my act together.

    I was really more worried that in a big business people will be working too hard to be social and won't want to hang out/meet new people. I've never really worked in that environment before - if i'm wrong please let me know. Usually when you make more money per hour, you're more busy. (usually, i don't want to set off a blue collar vs. white collar argument).

    Edit: thanks for all the dancer comments reallllllllyyyyyyy encouraging..... /s
    (i'm laughing though, not insulted.)

    Have to disagree with that, there are several careers where being gay will collide with a career path and keep you spring loaded.....Keithicon_cool.gif

    Do whatever you want to do. Being gay should have nothing to do with it. I'm going into GIS/digital mapping which is probably like .000000002% gay. But who cares? That's not the point of a career.
