Recent human rights movement has engendered significant changes in the political and social landscape for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans (LGBT) people around the globe. Given this nascent international shift in attitude, this chapter aims to provide an overview of career issues emerging from recent literature and global events. In particular, this chapter endeavors to address issues of career adaptability, employability, and resilience for LGBT individuals related to (a) equality and workplace climate, (b) international migration and intersectional identities, and (c) identity and career development for LGBT youths, from an international perspective. Implications for research, practice, and training are discussed within each section, and the chapter ends with summative suggestions for future directions.
