I've been trying to figure out what to do with my life since college graduation. Thinking it's going to be journalism and maybe teaching later on.

Interested to hear what you all do and what your career stories are... also if you're out at your job or not, and how you figured out or knew if you were going to tell coworkers.

At my current job - just something to pay the bills atm - I'm not really making an effort to really talk to people that much. Some of them seem conservative enough that I might feel like lying and saying I have a boyfriend if it comes up in conversation... annoyingly had to turn down a couple numbers from weirdo men.

I'm in cybersecurity :D

I am not out really at work, despite my manager being a very out and proud lesbian. When I first started here, the guy training us was gay and announced to our entire group that my colleague/friend was gay 'just like him' and how excited he was, so I never mentioned it to him/others because I don't really like people outing me like that.

My reasons for not coming out at work, except maybe to my good friends, is purely because I try to keep my work and personal life very separate. They keep pushing for me to have work email on my phone or slack but fuck that, I value my free time and privacy.
