Six Opportunities Phi Delta Theta Offers to Seniors to Prepare for Life After College

The transition from college to the professional world can be challenging. Graduating seniors are entering a new chapter, which may come with a new job search, financial situation, or location. Despite these changes, never forget the support Phi Delta Theta can give you. Here are six opportunities Phi Delta Theta offers to support the 2023 graduating class:

Graduating Seniors Portfolio

You will soon be joining a network of over 180,000 living Phi Delt alumni who understand how difficult it can be to enter into your professional career during this time.

Graduating seniors who are seeking employment can apply to be a part of this year’s portfolio. Phi Delta Theta will share this portfolio on social media platforms and with Phi Delt alumni and friends to help graduating seniors expand their network and connect them with job opportunities. To be featured in this year’s edition, please submit your information by March 20, 2023. To complete the application in its entirety, you will need a LinkedIn profile and/or résumé. Phi Delta Theta will begin publishing and sharing the first iteration of this year’s portfolio soon after the application deadline. 

Professional Greatness Badge

As part of its membership development programming, Phi Delta Theta introduced the Pursuit of Greatness badges. The Pursuit of Greatness program offers the opportunity to earn digital badges that serves as a tangible demonstration of skills they have developed through the Phi Delta Theta experience.

Phi Delts understand the value of the fraternity experience, but this isn’t always the case with employers. The badges translate chapter experiences into recognizable skills valued by employers during the hiring process.

We encourage you to earn the professional greatness badge on myPhiDelt, add it to your résumé and LinkedIn profile, and let it help you stand out amongst your peers.

Phi Delta Theta Professional Network Group on LinkedIn

More than 24,000 Phis are members of the Phi Delta Theta Professional Network on LinkedIn. We encourage you to join the group and connect with other Phis. You can also use the filters on LinkedIn to narrow the group’s members to those in your desired industry, company, or location.

Phi Delta Theta Employment Opportunities

Phi Delta Theta is hiring a chapter support coordinator for full-time employment. Chapter support coordinators assist chapters and emerging chapters with general chapter operations, finances, recruitment, chapter/member accountability, and new member education.

In addition, Phi Delta Theta is currently assisting house corporations that are actively seeking young leaders to serve as the live-in leadership adviser for chapters. This opportunity is perfect for someone attending grad school this fall or looking to stay involved with Phi Delta Theta beyond your undergraduate membership.

Phi Delta Theta is regularly looking to add new talent. Be on the lookout for upcoming employment opportunities.

Graduate Fellowships

The Phi Delta Theta Foundation has opened scholarship and graduate fellowship applications for the 2023–24 academic year. The Foundation designed fellowships to reduce financial barriers for Phi Delts attending graduate school. Members considering attending graduate school are encouraged to visit their myPhiDelt to apply. The deadline to complete most scholarship and graduate fellowship applications is May 1, 2023.

First Thursdays with the Phis

Whether you are moving to a new city or moving back home after graduation, Phi Delta Theta wants you to continue to connect with brothers after college. First Thursdays with the Phis is an alumni engagement initiative that works to gather Phis on the first Thursday evening of each month in consistent locations in an ever-growing list of cities across North America.
