Businesses and non-profit organizations receive more than a mere glimpse at online career profiles of job-seekers. We strive to help navigate ideal “match-making” interactions.
The Greek system is full of students who, not only join but, lead organizations on college campuses. These include their own fraternities and sororities, as well as other social, service, and professional clubs and organizations. Inherent in their involvement are active learning and practice of leadership principles, which are successfully transferable into the career workplace.
To find candidates, businesses and non-profit recruiters have traditionally mined for students through career centers and individual schools on college campuses. In most cases, the best course of action has been to exhibit at one or two career fairs, each year, and hope that student leaders would appear at their tables. While we, at Greek Ladders, encourage employers to continue this practice, we offer a unique and highly interactive model. Employers can now find these student leaders in our career network.
Students capitalizing on our tools and resources and managing their online career profiles, participating in online and on-site leadership/career building activities, and making connections to employers will find success. Between the LinkedIn-like profiles, to learning opportunities, to employer interfaces, student and recent graduate job-seekers using our career network substantially increase their chances of securing ideal employment.
Same can be said for employers. By joining our career network, businesses and non-profit organizations receive more than a mere glimpse at online career profiles of job-seekers. We strive to help navigate ideal “match-making” interactions. Here are just a number of ways we connect our employers to quality talent:
- Present at leadership and career workshops
- Greek-only career fairs and networking receptions
- Resume review workshops and “office hour” visits
- One-on-one meetings and interviews
- Introductions at individual chapter meetings
- Consider it a 365-day career fair!
The interpersonal opportunities to engage employers and job-seekers are priceless. However, those are just the in-person possibilities. We’ll actively introduce business and non-profit recruiters, electronically, through the following:
- Spotlight in weekly eNews Bulletins
- Targeted e-blasts
- Social media messaging (we focus on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook)
- Employer-branded videos and podcasts (hiring best practices, general promotions, position announcements, etc.)
- Private job board
- Spotlight on main Greek Ladders webpage
Our mission is to connect outstanding employers with quality talent for the purpose of creating ideal hiring relationships. By “going the extra mile” for both job-seekers and employers, we increase the chances of recruitment success.
We invite businesses and non-profit organizations to join the Greek Ladders Career Network. More importantly, we encourage these recruiters to leverage the “partnership” to fulfill their recruitment needs and goals.
