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 went back to school now to finish my Computer Science degree. Ut I've spent the last 10 years in Coporate America and worked with big name companies. During that time I never felt the need to "come out" at a job. It's not really the place for it. BUT if it comes up in conversation I dont hesitate to mention a gf, or ex gf, or my wife. (I don't have a gf and a wife) I live in a red state so you would think people would stone me or something. I've found that generally people either don't care, are cool with it, or are gay themselves and you've found a gay work buddy. These days people are much more accepting.
