Will Greek life help me find a job?

One of the tremendous assets of affiliation with a Greek letter organization is the nationwide network of alumni members of the organization. As a student prepares for entry into the career world, alumni members can assist in job placement through their knowledge of where jobs are and who is hiring.

Greek life will assist students in developing transferable skills that will be needed in the career world, such as management, leadership development, communications and more! Fraternities and sororities provide you the opportunity to gain skills you will be able to list on a resume and speak about in an interview. 

Fraternities and sororities are families, communities and some are legal corporations with annual operating budgets of over $50,000. Many members live and learn to work within this environment. Officers within each chapter are elected to manage the day-to-day operations of the organization. These officers are assisted by members serving on committees and by alumni who act as advisors. Many organizations have regional and international leadership conferences where students learn a variety of leadership skills. Members also can serve on a variety of university and Greek council governance, judicial and other Greek life subcommittees. All of this will help you as you enter the job market in a few years.
