Tips to Make Homecoming Work for You

Homecoming is a great time to celebrate the University's history, returning alumni, and big football game. It can also be an incredible opportunity to take career planning to an entirely new level, just by connecting with alumni.

Here are suggestions on how you can leverage Homecoming to get you a job.

  • If your chapter has a tent during tailgating, visit with as many alumni as you can. Start with the ones you've never met. Don't be intimidated; they want to meet with students. Since it's a social occasion, the conversation can be very casual. In addition to talking about the school and the old days in the chapter, talk about his or her career path, as well as your career interests.

We're Connecting Recruiters to Quality, Skilled Talent

Employers and candidates encounter frustration when it comes to pairing with the ideal employment situation. Greek Ladders was established to connect both, thereby serving as a liaison between the recruiter and the individual job-seeker.

Today’s highly competitive employee recruitment world has employers spending considerable time and money to find the ideal candidates to their companies. For the most part, their recruitment of college students is done on campuses, where they primarily recruit at career fairs. Since between 4-7% of the student population attends career fairs, recruiters can fall short of expectations and measured results.

Through Greek Ladders, the candidates using the Career Network present themselves to employers by describing their experiences, skills, and interests. At the same time, recruiters us the network to view candidate profiles, brand their companies, and promote open job and internship positions.

The goal is to connect employment recruiters with active student leaders, possessing strong skills, to fill full-time and internship positions.
