Career Fair Opportunity - Receive a personal recommendation from us!

We created a unique referral initiative to encourage fraternity and sorority members to make the most of the career fair experience. It’s more than just a referral, it’s our invitation to leverage each opportunity and take your career planning to an exciting level.

Here’s how to get our referral:

  • Visit businesses and nonprofits. However, don’t just visit…actually spend time participating in conversations.
  • Collect business cards and/or contact information from each booth.
  • send an email to Greek Ladders, containing all of the contact information for each business and/or nonprofit organization.

We will send an email to each representative you visited and invite a “re-connection” to the employer. Better yet, for those which you’re heavily targeting, we’ll call the employer and personally recommend your candidacy.


Fantasy Final Four for Military Heroes

One of our chapter affiliates, the Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the University of Nevada, created a unique contest to raise funds for the Fraternity's Military Heroes Campaign.

The prediction contest is a play on this weekend's Final Four. Working with fans4causes, the contest accepts donations from participants and offers prizes to winners. Participants are not required to donate, but its strongly encouraged. The contest is open to anyone, whether or not they're in a fraternity or sorority. They also don't need to know much about basketball.

Click here to sign up and play - http://www.smackline.com/player/invitation/04e39f34247041f5b6779bae0373418a
Spread the word!

NOTE - when you sign up, you'll be taken through a demonstration, which you can skip. You'll also be asked if you want to make a donation, which you can also skip. When you get to the contest, make your predictions. Your score will be calculated based on the "confidence" level you place for each. Be on the lookout for newly added prizes.

Help the chapter raise $1,000 and great awareness for the Military Heroes Campaign.

Because Greek Ladders is founded on philanthropic principles, we strong endorse this campaign.

Career Fair Readiness Night is Set!

The first of its kind event takes place tonight on the University of Arizona campus to prepare students for this week's Spring Career Days.

"We framed the idea as a 'last-minute' readiness event to take place in multiple locations, says Matt Noble, co-founder of Greek Ladders. "It's a strategic move to connect employers with career-minded students seeking internships and full-time jobs."

The Career Fair Readiness Night will take place in five different locations, each with a different spin and list of participating business leaders. The locations and their respective leaders are:
Alpha Epsilon Phi
Pete Corrigan - University of Arizona Eller College of Management
Jen Fortuna - Quicken Loans
Tara Trailov - TEKsystems
Ana Maria Montoya - TEKsystems

Kappa Alpha
Doug Jones - Northwestern Mutual
Bryan Preston - TEKsystems
Shannon Grimes - Charles Schwab & Co.
Brenda Henning - First Investors

Kappa Sigma
Andy McEldowney - Tucson Insurance Associates
Brennan Allen - CenturyLink
Zach Jones - Northwestern Mutual
Matt Janke - TEKsystems
Justin Boggess - TEKsystems
Randi Norman - Vanguard

Sigma Alpha Epsilon
Samantha Salway - Quicken Loans
Brendan Snyder - AXA Advisors
Jon Beaty - Liberty Mutual Insurance
Char Ross - TEKsystems
Megan Soto - TEKsystems
Faydra Romero - Vanguard

Delta Delta Delta
Matt Noble - Greek Ladders

Topics to be discussed at each location include:

  • first impressions
  • how to approach business leaders
  • what recruiting/business leaders look for and want to see
  • LinkedIn best practices
  • questions to ask at the career fair
  • what to bring to the career fair
  • Hiring practices of my firm
  • What my firm seeks in new hires
  • Career fair suggestions

"We've had an incredible time planning this big night and couldn't be more excited about its prospects for success," says Pete Parker, the other Greek Ladders co-founder. "We're just not sure who will benefit the most...the business leaders or the students."
