    Default College Camming & Future Career

    Hey Guys

    I can't believe I found this forum and I'm really happy I did! I recently started camming on Chaturbate (2-3 weeks ago) and have been making a ton of money. I'm really happy about it. I'm 19 and a sophomore honors student in college. I have really big dreams for myself in the future and I'm worried that somehow my cam history will show up in a background check or something. I want to become an attorney and I know it requires a state license and all of that. So do you think camming will show up? Does anyone have experience with chaturbate and know what name the IRS reports them under? I just hope it isn't something obvious, because otherwise I'll quit before I hang a noose around my neck lol. Seriously though. I need the extra money because my part time job isn't enough and I hate my life at home. I live in NYC and rent is impossible so I need to be making more money so I can move out . Please help.

    I wouldn't be worried about it. I'm studying for the LSATs as well. Camming is not illegal. It won't be a problem getting into law school and graduating with a JD. And the state bar just wants to see honesty and full disclosure.

    I'm friends with a number of law students, though I'm not one. Several of the girls have stripped to pay for school and haven't had an issue passing the bar review. One of them openly stated that she had stripped through school and they didn't care. Now, stripping as a practicing attorney? That might be frowned upon. I'm assuming the same would be true of camming. Granted, it isn't illegal or anything to cam/strip. Still, for the sake of your professional life, I'd recommend keeping it quiet to avoid the any potential harassment over your current camming. Otherwise, make that money girl.

    Right now the only real area of concern would be the existence of 1099 IRS reports that would allow state professional licensing agencies and 'sensitive' potential future employers to become aware of your adult webcam history. This can't and won't prevent you from obtaining your professional license after graduation, but it could potentially limit available job offers / options. If you intend to go into private practice this means nothing. But if you intend to seek employment with a prestigious law firm who caters to 'sensitive' clients it could be a problem.

    The bigger worry in terms of effects 4-5 years from now is that facial recognition search technology is growing rapidly in the private sector. Thus by the time you graduate, it's fairly probable that a prospective employer can snap a pic of you during an interview ... and before the interview is over, come back with any number of facial match internet images / videos of you performing on cam which have been uploaded via tube sites, customer upload sites etc. There's a thread discussing this in detail in the Industry Insight forum - see .

    Camming may not be an issue but what you post on social media these day is.

    Your political views, your drunken, how much pot you smoke or sexy pics posted on these sites are looked at by potential employers.

    There is more to it than you think. So pics taken during a cam show of a dildo in the pussy & in the ass may affect a law firm from hiring you over a classmate who didn't.

    When you strip, before there were no pics or videos of actions that went on in the club. When you cam your sex life is out there for the whole world to see.
    Now, consider the judges, many who frown upon females wearing pants in court as disrespectful.

    Like it or not we live in a world with a double standard. All men watch porn, but think of those in it as beneath them.

    You can graduate top of your class, go to Yale or Harvard, but good luck getting hired. It is a harsh world. Nobody will care that you needed the money. Nobody will care that you don't owe student debts.

    Even if you do get hired, it is a competitive field & someone will send all your bosses an email with your pic or video being naughty. Then you become office poison.

    Going for such a degree, spending all the money & to risk it for camming doesn't make sense.

    ^^^ the biggest risk factor appears to be the changes which might take place regarding 'in-depth' background checks to be performed 4-5 years from now versus 'in-depth' background checks performed today. Based on past history, 4-5 years ago, strip clubs and webcam hosts weren't issuing 1099's to the IRS ... thus any 'paper trail' connecting a particular person with 'adult' industry work would have been difficult to uncover. However, any girl who decided to invest 4-5 years worth of tuition and study time based on that earlier situation is now finding that, after graduation, she is being required to sign IRS disclosure permission forms by state professional licensing agencies and 'sensitive' employers to allow them to access her 1099's. Similarly, 4-5 years ago social media sites were still in their infancy ... and no employers gave a thought to checking social media postings of prospective employees. Today, many 'sensitive' employers are asking job applicants to provide their social media passwords !

    I also have to concede that Sam is correct in that there are presently US college graduates in every field who are unemployed or underemployed. And with each passing semester, colleges are graduating even more students. On top of that, you've got foreign H1B visa 'professionals', quasi-legal immigrant 'professionals', etc. now being legally allowed to work in the USA ... who are willing to accept significantly lower pay rates ( and/or who create lower net costs for their employer due to their ineligibility for certain benefits which the employer therefore doesn't have to pay for ). See . The obvious take-away is that, for many years into the future, all employers offering 'desirable' professional jobs will probably have far more applicants knocking on their door than they have openings to fill. As such, if anything questionable shows up in a background check, those 'professional' employers can simply drop that one resume in the trash can and move on to the next 100 resume's. For an attorney, an 'adult' work history could be problematic when applying to a law firm with 'sensitive' clients, a major corporation, certain gov't agencies, etc. However, an 'adult' work history will not be a problem if the person's goal is to work at an inner city legal aid clinic, as a ( private practice ) public defender, etc.

    Again, my main concern is that, over the next 4-5 years, facial recognition search technology will become a standard part of the 'in-depth' background check process by the time that dancers and camgirls who are now starting college actually graduate. As such, a calculated risk is involved regarding the creation of a 'paper trail' or an 'internet image trail' that leads to their 'adult' industry work history.

    I feel bad for today's kids. In college was a time of exploration, of having fun, learning who you are. Lots of frat parties & sex. Nobody recorded it back in my day, hell cell phones didn't even exist yet & PAGERS were new technology for professionals.

    Now, when you go out everyone is taking pics & videos & posting them immediately to the web. All bad behavior is recorded for the world to see instantly.

    The worst I got was several years out of college was a guy recognizing me saying "Weren't you the girl dancing on the coffee tables at a frat party trying to drink everything up when the cops got there determined not to sober if hauled to jail. Which made the cops laugh so hard they didn't take you in." I went "wasn't me". LOL I was 17 yrs old & figured if my Dad had to bail me out, I might as well get in trouble for real. Of course, the cops told my Dad, who laughed about it.

    Sadly, you have to start now, being careful of where you work, what pics or videos get posted on the web. Which means you always have to behave. Never send a boyfriend sexy nude pics. NEVER let them film ya'll having sex. Have good credit, that is even looked at by employers these days.

    Don't cam.

    Melonie is right. The American dream of go to college get a degree, work hard, save a percentage of your money, invest into a home & stock market & you will be okay. Well, that simply isn't true. Many people lost their homes. Many people lost their portfolios in 2008. Many American are defaulting on their credit card bills. NO job is secure. Companies want loyalty, but give NONE in return.

    You are on the right track to think of the consequences of your actions at a young age. Life is tough, with many hard decisions, but it can be fun. Once you make a decision, go for it with no regrets.

    Good Luck,
    Sam

    I agree. Even my Streamate pop-ups, people that didn't even know I cammed have seen them and told me about them. And these are people who actually TOLD me. Who knows who else has seen them. I don't even look the same as in the pop-ups now.

    So even if you cam just ONE week, and someone you know takes a screenshot of it (which is likely because they may want to show someone else who knows you), they could anonymously email it to your boss in the future or try to blackmail you with it. You may not even know they have ever seen you camming. They don't have to tell you. In fact, they never have to tell you they saw you on cam.

    IMO, by FAR, self-employment is the most stable employment. Bosses and companies can legally find some excuse to fire you, whenever they feel like, for absolutely no real reason at all. They are the ones in control of their own business, and will fight hard to keep the image of their business squeaky clean (aka no sexworkers or "immoral" people associating with their business).
