    How do fraternities help you get jobs in the future

    I hear it a lot but how many fraternity bros actually get hooked up with jobs from other fraternity members post college?

    kinda just seems like a advertising thing to get you to join a fraternity

    Fraternities have thousands of alumni to network through and most have job networking through the national/international headquarters.

    If you are in a big frat that has members that went on to become higher level in business and they manage places /are CEOin it could help. Or if you are in a leadership position it might look good on a resume.


    But lets be honest, unless you are in an ivy league type frat you don't have any advantages from it. How many of the normal frat guys really go on to a position of power? 2% at best? Most frat guys aren't the overly intellectual type that are going to be running companies. They are more concerned with partying then what company they are going to be working for 5-10 years in the future.

    Yeah it's a nice advantage to know people in a company, but lets be realistic, it's not hard to know/meet people.

    I've gotten dozens of job offers from people that are friends with my parents, my friends parents, etc. My friend got a job as a cop simply because he introduced himself to the sheriff one day and was really friendly. Just be friendly and meet people.


    If I were going to join a frat expecting to get a job from it, I'd want a list of the companies that the former frat guys are high level at first.

    They don't, unless you happen to run into a frat brother at some point in the future who's hiring and hasn't moved on since college.

    Chances are you aren't going to an Ivy League school where you're likely to pull straight A's and meet the fathers of successful frat brothers who happen to meet you when they visit and keep you in the back of their mind for hiring you in the future.

    Just do your studies and get the grades.

    In before - yeah, ok dad.

    The theory is, is that your frat bro is your boss that graduated a few years before. It's severely flawed, because most of the beaurocrats in the modern day are not frat members. You best bet us to work your ass of to become an elite and rise above the beaurocrats.

    It's basically networking... you get to know a ton of people, then you have better chances of knowing someone who knows someone where you are trying to get a job.

    i would like to see the stats for how many fortune 500 CEOs are greek men/women. i think you would be extremely surprised at how high that number is. think of the number of fraternity men at any one school at any given time, and now remember that almost every fraternity has at least ONE very talented individual (you have to look REALLY hard through the alcohol and retardedness sometimes). but the odds are actually pretty good.

    the way my past in a fraternity has helped me was through the volunteer work we did, the leadership experience i gained (chapter president is a BIG responsibility, you have to work with the school, the alumni, insurance companies, and are liable for basically everything), as well as connections made with several alumni in local businesses. all things that when put on a resume thats being compared to another similar person right outta school (or applying to grad schools) can make your resume much more appealing than theirs.

    Social networking isn't quite what it used to be..... yeah, there's the odd chance you'll be able to use a fraternity connection to get a job, but it'll be just that, a job.... not a career.
