Join the Career Network and Get Noticed by Employers

The value of the Greek Ladders Career Network is determined by the number of individual job-seekers (aka candidates) completing online registrations. Much like the whole “chicken and egg” scenario, with the registration of every candidate, the likelihood increases of additional employers joining the network to find ideal talent.

Leveraging your profile in the Career Network will get you noticed by employers.

RSVP to the Largest Student-to-Professional Networking Event in History

It all takes place in a few weeks at the University of Nevada.

Join fellow business and community leaders, campus officials, and employment recruiters a special professional Networking Night for fraternity and sorority members. The second annual event takes place on Thursday, March 10, 5:30pm-7:00pm, in the JCSU Ballrooms.

All 2,000+ fraternity and sorority members are invited to participate as part of “Greek Week,” where students earn points for their attendance. All will assemble in the ballrooms to learn about networking and personal branding before breaking into structured networking activities with professional leaders.

Our goal is to introduce students with 200 professional leaders at this event. This will demonstrate the incredible value one can gain through networking. And, as we found last year, several business leaders landed great recruiting leads for future full-time and internship positions. Given our goal, you’re encouraged to bring colleagues and co-workers.

It's free of charge for all!
