I知 trying to find a job, pretty much any, but am concerned with the fact I知 transitioning and how big of an issue this will be. I already changed my name legally, but I did that before I was ready. I feel like it is going to be impossible to hide the fact I知 doing this due to that. I知 looking for an entry level office job, or anything I can get, at least for now... I知 in Houston, Texas

If pretty much any will do then take pretty much any that's offered.
Try for something that appeals in some way and pay attention to be better at it.

Do you WANT to hide it? Then don't.

But until you can develop some actually useful skill and experience...
something that allows you to be considered based on that proven skill and experience...
you'll never get off the bottom rung whatever sort of clothing you wear.

Government sector, non-profits and health care centers might be more understanding, less discriminatory.

Call centers don't care what you look like or who you are, as long as you can answer the phone and read their script.
