E-News Bulletin - November 30, 2015


There's good information in this week's issue, including career planning best practices, list of this week's campus events, roster of campuses where we have a presence, and an opportunity for recruiters.

Sourcing Job-Seeking Candidates to Employers

Based on interest from business leaders in various communities, and demand from our subscription-based employers, we added a staffing (or placement) solution as a means of joining our career network.

In this model, we proactively source candidates to employers to meet their immediate hiring needs. This model differs from the subscription-based model, where we proactively present employers to candidates.

Connecting collegiate candidates to employment

We spend our days and nights working to make ideal connections between college students and alumni to employers and their job and internship opportunities.

Focusing on campus leaders enables us to present candidates, whom possess applicable skills, which are immediately utilized in the workplace. We believe the skills learned via extra-curricular activities, clubs, and organizations sets these students and young professionals apart from fellow candidates.

There are thousands of job and internship seeking candidates in the Greek Ladders Career Network. These candidates are current students and young professionals, affiliated with college campuses throughout the United States. We're pleased to be working with candidates affiliated with these nearly 90 college campuses.

Boost your visibility to employers

The best way to get your job candidacy considered by employers is to be totally on top of your career planning game. Through Greek Ladders, job-seekers are introduced to employers through career events (workshops, networking receptions, etc.), personally recommended, and viewed through your online career profile.

Get noticed by recruiters after just ten minutes to complete your online career profile.

The more we know about you, the more we recommend you to potential employers. The primary ways for us to truly know you is by talking, emailing, and having a completely full career profile.

It's all about Transferable Skills

We work closely with campus leaders to connect them to career opportunities. These individuals are actively engaged in fraternities and sororities, within clubs and organizations, as student body officers and senators, and community activists. In the many roles they play, they're learning, sculpting, practicing, and teaching skills which will be utilized in the workplace. These are the same skills recruiters seek when identifying top talent.

We'd like your help to determine the many skills and benefits associated with campus leadership. We're starting with two positions used in most Greek-letter organizations and campus clubs.

We'll post the results over the upcoming Holiday Break. More importantly, we'll use the information to remind recruiters of the incredible values and transferable skills associated with active campus and community involvement.

Invitation to Recruiters and Business Leaders

The events we host are becoming increasingly popular with students and leaders. The following are networking mixers, which attract upwards of 750 students and 100 business leaders, depending on the campus. The ROI is quite high, enabling recruiters and leaders to make strong connections with future professional leaders. There's no cost to attend these events.
