  • Guiding students to make the most of campus career centers and the Career Studio;
  • Conducting career development workshops, fairs, and networking receptions;
  • Recruiting corporate and non-profit leaders to present at workshops and presentations; and,
  • Coordinating specialized career-oriented activities, such as resume reviews, mock interviewing, and career fair prep sessions.
  • Elevating significance and value of fraternal membership
  • Increasing participation of alumni/ae through career mentor programs
  • Provide charitable funding for scholarships, fraternal programming, etc.

Exciting Additions for 2016/2017

  • Students will be introduced to employers more frequently and proactively than in the past. To qualify for the introductions, students may be required to complete a certain degree of their online career profile and submit a resume.
  • Upon joining the Greek Ladders Career Network, each student’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) will be scanned. Advice will be given, especially to develop a more appealing LinkedIn profile.
  • Upon joining the Career Network, students will be invited to conduct an in-person meeting or phone call to help Greek Ladders better understand career interests, and answer questions.
  • Pete can design a career certification model for chapters (and all clubs/organizations). He can do so in collaboration with the appropriate student affairs leadership (e.g. Marcelo Vasquez).
  • Pete can host weekly “office hours,” making himself be available on campus to meet with students (individually and groups) to discuss career planning, leadership, fraternity/sorority life, or philanthropy. Possible locations could be the Joe, FSL Office, Career Studio, Quad, or anywhere.
