A crossdresser's thoughts on life, fashion, fabulousness, and (oh yeah) dressing up

Taking a leap


Since starting this blog, I have talked about my male-mode professional life only sparingly.  However, I must make an exception here, and I will let you in on a little admission:  I have been thinking about leaving my current place of employment for another company.  It’s not that I am totally unhappy with my current situation.  Heck, I’ve been where I’m at for well over a decade and have never regretted a moment, taking pride in the work I’ve done and the professional relationships I’ve built, past and present.  However, it’s just that some of the work for the team I’m on, or at least the volume of my duties, seem to be dwindling down.  What’s more, I’m not sure if my supervisor has been able to find anything that has the potential to replace that lost work.

So, all that uncertainty has led me this week to do something I hadn’t really needed to do in the past couple of years:  Send out my resume to prospective new employers, in hope that the skills I possess will be a perfect fit for the positions they have open.  Of course, that resume is not as polished as I had hoped, as I so crushingly learned from a resume expert today.  Let’s just say my resume needs much less “doing” statements and more “achieving” ones.

Despite that, however, I am hopeful that a potential new employer can decipher all that gobbledygook and find that a capable, dedicated, and respected professional can be a real benefit to their company.  One such company is… well, I won’t tell you what that company is, but I will say it’s in an industry that has never been previously on Male Mode Me’s radar but is right up Allison’s alley:  Fashion!  Okay, it’s not a potential job where I design the latest trends or even tell anyone what they should or shouldn’t wear.  But it’s a behind-the-scenes job where I won’t mind letting others shine.  Wish me luck!

A part of the trans community ("cross-dresser" is the term that applies to me) who finds themselves much more expressive and somewhat more confident when presenting in a feminine persona. An admirer and supporter of those who are fashionable, fabulous, and friendly (LGBT or otherwise). Someone who tries to be witty and unique, but is not even remotely perverted or a pariah (I am a real human being, just like you). Using various writing styles on this blog to communicate thoughts and feelings concerning my life experiences, fashion sense, and the world at large (and maybe impressing my high school creative writing teacher who deservedly gave me middling grades).

  1. Good luck, Allison! You are certainly taking a huge leap, and I wish you the best in finding a job that you’ll enjoy (especially fashion? Wow!). Let us know about your progress later down the line; I’d be happy to hear about it! 🙂

    • Thank you. That fashion job is less about the industry and more about my skills meshing well with the duties (or so I hope). Still, it sounds like an exciting opportunity. And at least I can take my time in searching; my current employer hasn’t shown any signs of wanting to show me the door (yet).
