The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) released its Job Outlook for 2016. Two of the surveys revealed a high favorability to student leaders, particularly Greeks.
Members of Greek Life, particularly those to become very active within their chapters and on campus, are more appealing to potential employers than their fellow students. While we, at Greek Ladders, knew this all along, the NACE Job Outlook 2016 survey made the confirmation.
The way we see it, highly active fraternity and sorority members possess - in the least - the following attributes.
- Written and verbal communication
- Friendly and outgoing personality
What we also found interesting was the Influence of Attributes data collected in the survey. While outstanding academic performance serves as the foundation of workplace success, other attributes are appealing to employers. The principles, ideals, and programs associated with Greek Life sets job-seekers apart from other students. Employers look favorably at students who:
- Hold leadership positions
- Involved on campus
We're excited by this study, as it validates everything we represent and do to give fraternity and sorority students and young alumni a leg up in their careers.
