On-Campus Jobs that Prepare you for the Future

In college, it is important to devote some of your time to getting ahead in your career. Internships are great, but it is hard for a lot of college students to devote time to an unpaid internship with all of the financial burdens they have to bear. Fortunately, on-campus jobs can be a great addition to your resume and can give you the hands-on experience you need plus a little cash in your pocket! Plus, on-campus jobs are a great way to get involved at your school and are awesome networking opportunities. Here are a few ideas on how to get the most out of the job opportunities your college offers!

Tutor students

Tutoring other students shows great leadership and communication skills. It also takes a lot of patience and requires you to know the subject you are tutoring forwards and backwards. If you are good at math, tutor other students in math! Great at English? Proofread other students’ research papers! Not only does this look great on a resume, but you get a great sense of accomplishment from helping others succeed! I am forever grateful to the math tutor who helped me crawl my way through calculus.

Tweet for your collegedownload (1)
Paid to Tweet? For real? Sign me up! Be a Twitter ambassador for your school. This will boost your knowledge of social media and give you a leg up in the marketing/business world! Virtually every university has a Twitter page, not to mention the numerous separate accounts for their sports teams and clubs. Twitter pages require constant maintenance to keep them up to date and accurate.

 Assist a professor

You know who writes great job recommendations? Professors. Is your major Biology? Work in the bio lab or assist a Biology professor. If you are planning on being a teacher, what a great way to get hands-on experience in your field!

 Become a brand ambassador.

A lot of brands offer programs where you get paid to be a brand ambassador to create awareness for their product. When you are beefing up your resume, this is a great addition! Companies will be impressed that you have done social media marketing for well-known companies.
It is always important to keep your future in mind, and what better way to prepare for that future than to get a job that prepares you for it! Happy job hunting,

Help! It’s Time to Choose a Big!

So you’ve joined a sorority. Good for you! You have just joined a sisterhood that will change your life. Now that you are a member, it is time to choose your Big. What does that even mean? What does that entail? How in the world do I choose? Here’s the skinny:

In a sorority, your Big is an upperclassman member of the chapter that will be your confidon, go-to girl, and pro advice-giver. Preferably, this sorority member should be one that you look up to and feel totally comfortable with. She will be your mentor through your “newbie” stage of being a member of a sorority and will share a special bond with you even after college. Think of these things when choosing a Big.b80ec82135ac99520a62bce9ccda92f1

  1. Who do you see as someone who could be your mentor as an initiated member?
  2. Who do you want to share special moments with throughout your college experience?
  3. In your chapter, who do you look up to?
  4. Is there a member that has an officer position that you think you would like to have one day?
  5. Is this woman a person who is only fun on the weekends or is she someone who is consistent and accountable to put you in your place if you start to slip?

These are all great attributes to look for in your future Big. You want someone who will support you and lead you. Your Big will be someone that will encourage you in both your sorority and your schooling as well as your career.

No matter who your Big ends up being, value the relationship and appreciate the new bond. You were put together for a reason! Getting a Big is an exciting time, so cherish every member of this new experience!

Top 4 Proven Ways to Get Hired

To all of our college graduates, getting hired is probably a top priority, is it not? Don’t you wish there was a job fairy that would go out into the world and “bibbity bobbity boop” you into your dream job? Although we are no fairy god mother, we have the next best alternative! Here is a list of the top 4 proven ways to get hired.

 

  1. Clean up your social media: Any time you are applying for a job or even an internship, you want to clean up your social media. What are some things you want to remove from your profile? Any foul language, photos of you partying or drinking, photos of you gambling, scantily dressed selfies, that sort of content. Before interviewing you or after reviewing your resume, some employers will Google search you. When they search you your social media profiles will pop up, and some potential employers will even scroll through your profile to see for themselves if you are responsible and mature enough to work at their company. One moral of the story is to think twice before posting anything on social media, because you never know who will view it 6a00d834520c6f69e20133f2609640970bat any point in time!
  2. Fine tune your resume: The first thing hiring managers see is your resume. First impressions are crucial. The saying is true, employers typically spend less than a minute looking at your resume unless it catches their attention. One tip is to make your resume generic and not make it tailored to a specific job. Another very important tip is to check your grammar and spelling! Also, leave reliable references! You should also keep the resume 2 pages long or shorter, because short sweet and to the point is the way to go! And finally, use a professional email address. Having an address like Rainbowpony98@yahoo.com will not get you taken very seriously.
  3. Follow up after you send in your resume: Unless the ad says not to call, a good recommendation is to follow-up wither later the same day you sent the resume or the next day to make sure it arrived and landed in the right hands. Following up will also get your resume to the top of the stack!
  4. Rock the interview!

 

It’s a tough world out there, but with these tips you will be able to land your dream job!

Good luck out there.

Greek Life: Famous Women Who Were in Sororities

Did you know that according to USA today, all but three US Presidents since 1825 have been members of a fraternity? Also, 85% of Fortune 500 executives were involved in Greek life. How about the females in sororities? Lets see, the first female astronaut was in a sorority, the first female senator, and, most importantly, Elle Woods! I had no idea so many famous women got their start in sororities! Here are a few more leading ladies that got their starts in Greek life and went on to do great things.

Katie Couric

Katie was a member of Delta Delta Delta at the University of Virginia. All you Tri-Delts out there, you are in good company!Katie_Couric_a_p

Condoleeza Rice

Condoleeza joined the Alpha Chi Omega sorority while she was a piano/poli sci major. This worked perfectly for her because Alpha Chi was a sorority with musical origins.

Kate Spade

Kate Spade went to Arizona State University where she majored in journalism. Spade was an Omega member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. I personally LOVE anything Kate Spade! Totally adorable.

 kate-spade

Sara Blakely

You may not know this name right off the bat, but you will be singing her praises when I tell you who she is. She is the creator of Spanx! The world’s best way to suck it all in when you need to well, suck it all in! She is the youngest woman to be on the cover of Forbes’ Billionaire list and was a member of Delta Delta Delta at Florida State University.

 

We hope you have learned more about some of the leading ladies who got their start in sororities! They are such an inspiration.

Now is the time to begin preparing for goodbyes and hellos, the end of one chapter, and the beginning of a new and exciting time of life.

Grad Gifts: Give your sisters/brothers some chapter memorabilia to remember all the good times. Show them how valuable your friendship is, right now and beyond.

Successful Bid Day Planning

Bid Day Planning Tips
Bid day banner.png
Being in charge of Bid Day at your sorority is a big responsibility. Your sorority will be inviting women to become new sisters on a day that can mark the start of lifelong friendships. How can you make this day truly memorable? Here are a few smart tips from the pros at Greek Gear to make candidates feel welcome before they accept the “bid” to join your chapter.

Start Early. The minute you learn the date of Bid Day, grab your calendar and set a date for that first planning meeting. Even months in advance, that first meeting will set the tone for a leader who is in charge from the get-go. Invite your most creative and hardest-working sisters to form your Bid Day committee. If you delegate roles early, your sisters will have more time to plan a truly memorable event.

Create a budget.  Ask your active sisters how much they are willing to pay for T-shirts and other Bid Day goodies. Ask your House treasurer to be on your committee to keep you on track and on budget. Make a list of everything you want, and then start whittling away it until you have met your budget. Now you won’t be tempted to add expensive goodies in coming weeks. Most Bid Day events involve small, economically priced gifts that you can find in one place at the GreekGear.com website.

Choose a theme. With your budget in hand, you’ll be less likely to choose a theme that will involve too many expensive decorations and trinkets. Besides, this day is about unity and spirit – not money. Schedule a Bid Day committee meeting to focus just on the theme. Browse through pages of websites like Greek Gear for inspiration.  Greek Gear has been the go-to source for custom sorority jewelry, apparel, party favors, decals and holiday gifts since 1999.

Dress it up. Active members and new sisters can wear the same shirts or shirts in the same style, but in different colors. Choose traditional tees or pretty raglan styles with three-quarter sleeves. Or, design your own shirts with custom screen-printing from Greek Gear. Just before the big day, reward your committee members with a surprise thank-you gift of a beautiful lavaliere. Reward yourself, too, with a lavaliere or charm bracelet with a Greek letter charm to remember this special day

How to Fill That Big/Little Gift Basket

How to Fill That Big/Little Gift Basket

little-t-shirtNow that the Big Sister/Little Sister Reveal is official at your sorority, it’s time to present your new Little Sister with a gift basket that will let her know you will be her mentor, guide, champion and friend. Here are a few tips to help you put together the perfect Little Sis gift. For Little Sisters, introduce yourself by presenting that perfect Big Sis gift basket or box of thoughtful gifts for your new Big Sister.

Choose a theme for your basket. – This will help you focus on items that go together. For example, if your theme is friendship, select a friendship bracelet and add your favorite friendship saying to a custom-printed shirt from Greek Gear. Other themes can center on flowers, sailboats, feathers or your sorority colors

Stick to your budget. Buy the most expensive item first. Then, fill up the rest of your basket with fun buttons, pins, pens, notebooks and other inexpensive items. Your chapter has set a Little Sister budget, but you can stick to it if you choose the “big ticket” item first. For Little Sisters, an expensive gift is not as memorable a carefully selected basket of affordably priced items.

Here are some great, affordable ideas from Greek Gear for gifts that will fill up your Little Sister gift basket.
